Am explaining with an example,

You are asked to prepare a copy of original Japanese brochure consist of one page for the general meeting within 10 minutes. But you have to go shopping since the xerox machine of your office was repaired.

Hard work : you are going to shop at a high speed and arrived the office after taking the xerox at last minute.

Smart work : even though you don't know the Japanese language, you are copying the thing in that original brochure simply in one page within 5 minutes.

Smart work is getting the same or better output from least possible input when compared to hardwork. In other words smart work is the most effective and efficient way of completing a given task while hardwork is following an orthodox path no matter how difficult it is to achieve.

I think smart work is entirely based on talent.

I would like to say one quote, sir.

Hardwork beats talent when talent didn't work hard.

And talent without hardwork is a tragedy.

So both are needs for a successor.

Hard work : Work done less efficiently, typically "harder" on one's health/resources (characteristic of a "grind mindset", slower rate of growth over extended timeline).

Smart work : Work done more efficiently, thereby conserving more energy/inciting less stressors which take less of a toll on one's health/resources (characteristic of a "growth mindset", faster rate of growth on an extended timeline).

For me, hard work and smart work co-relate to each other because missing of anything leads to failure.

For example, if the person is doing only hard work then there might me be a possibility of not achieving the set target and on the other hand, a person only doing smart work then he will definitely be failing because smart work is using of brains and to apply it practically hard work.

In my view, smart work is done by using our brain intelligence in a short period of time in an easy way while hard work is doing with a lot of time taking process. But sometimes smart work will not applicable, for ex: hardworking a person have to go for 9th floor he used to use steps to reach his floor, but if the same person uses his brain to reach 9th floor he uses lift then this is known as smart work, but suddenly the power might off then he can't reach to his point then smart work will not use hard work always gain while smart work doesn't sometimes. So I believe in hard work.
