I would say, both Hard work and Smart work go hand in hand.

To do work smartly you have to work hard to learn and know about the things So that you can apply them to do work smartly.

According to me, basically, there is no difference. Without doing any hard work you can't do a smart work. And when someone says you are a smart worker then obviously you are doing some hard work and it's the result of that hard work.

My view is that.

If we apply only physical power to achieve our goal can say hard work but if we apply both both physical and mental power to achieve a goal can say smart work.

For example.

If our goal is to cut a tree but if we cut a branch of a tree then it is said to be hard work but if we cut directly the base of the tree can say smart work.

Smart work saves a lot of time rather than hard work.

Hard work is the way of working where someone said you do it this way no matter that is taking time but smart worker will see correct and less time consumable way of working. EG: You need to carry something heavy where you can ask for help would be smart move rather carrying it alone.

Sir for ex. If I had to open a lock and I don't have the key to open it. The time I used a hammer to open it will be called as hard work. But instead if I can use a hand cutter to cut the lock. It will be considered a smart work.

No matter what if you do hard work or smart work, you have to use your brain you can't just right anything that is going on your mind, so you are wrong people who thing that only smart work is brainy work. Hard workers use their brain, that's another thing if they don't understand it.

Smart work tells that in which way and how much of hard work we have to do for success because labor do much more hard work than others. So without smart work, we find a success but takes much more time.

Hard work is putting in as many efforts as you can to get the desired results whereas smart work is doing the same things involving lesser efforts but yielding same results. Let me illustrate it with an example.

If you are asked to draw a chair. Some of you may use your physical strength to bring it up but a few of you will use the wheels available to drag it to the position without putting in the much efforts. Former is the hard work. And latter is the smart work.

Hard work - working with lot of Effort. Here our Body plays active role.

Well, I would say smart work comes from hard work only. As there is one theory also ' Work hard until you get smart. So, in my point of view, you can do smart work only if you have work harder in your life. And knowing where to put effort and where not to work hard is smart work.

I think that smart work is that you already know what to do, that you already experienced with hard work, but in according to my life experience you need smart work to make your hard work valuable it doesn't like that they didn't appreciate your hard work but with more skills you can do that better.
