According to me,

Hard work means Completing minimum work with maximum time and maximum cost. (Effective work: Work completed on time but incurs high cost).

Whereas smart work refers to completing maximum work in minimum time and in minimum cost i.e.(Effective and efficient work means completing work on time or before time with less cost).

For me, Hard work makes us more capable, and of course, bring more potential gradually, but remember it never fails. Slowly- slowly, today or tomorrow you would definitely be at the peak of success.

And the Smart work, Well it takes short time, No doubt. But it doesn't mean that you would success every time.

I think smart work is a by-product of hard work. When you work hard for a project (suppose on Java) then the next project on java will not require much hard work.

The relationship is of superset and subset. Where hardwork is the superset and smartwork is a subset. One who is a smart worker is a hardworker too. But not every hardworker is a smartworker. Smartness can be achieved through experience after hardworking.

With the help of both we can achieve the result. But the only thing which makes the difference is Time taken.

Hard work consumes more time where as smart consumers less.

We should achieve the result in a smart way by working hard.

In my opinion, smart work may fail Sometime but not hard work. That why I choose to do work hard and but I apply my smartness to remove hurdles in the path of achieving results.

Harish : Excellent answer.

Hard work means handling things patiently and it usually takes place with certain set defined rules and regulations while smart work means handling things tactfully and instantaneously. Hard work is usually practised when a person has ample time and smart work is usually practised when the work needs to be done in less amount of time.

In my opinion, "Hard Work" means more efforts and more times, but less work and, "Smart Work" is fewer efforts and fewer times, but more works.

For example - If we use stairs to go to 10th floor of a building, it takes more efforts and more times, the ultimate result comes fewer, it's called " Hard Work" and if we use a lift to go to same distance of that building, it takes fewer efforts and fewer times, but the ultimate result comes more, it's called " Smart Work".

Smart work works both smartly and hardly it means doing work smartly using ideas, mind and with strength leads to do things perfectly as well as it is less time consuming.

Whereas hard work lots of strength is required, stress is also applied, lots of energy is wasted and time consuming.

Both walk hand in hand.

But hard work with a lack of logic and sense would only make the work harder.

Whereas smart work with the expectation of idle time would only exploit the self.

In today's age, time is money and being smart depends a lot on the time we spent getting our work done.
