I have finished this work within 1 hr with my full physical effort. It's called hard work.

I have finished the same work within 30 mins without so much physically efforts. It called smart work.

Actually, peoples do smart work to reduce the work timing and less a bit physical effort also. That's it.

Hard work - work with physical effort.

Smart work- work with mental effort.

For ex, if I do a work in 10-15 hours then it's my hard work if I completed the same work in 1-2 hours then it is my smart work.

Contrary to common understanding, hard work and smart work don't have to do with physical nor mental efforts. Hard work is giving in most or all your efforts; smart work is figuring out time-efficient ways to reduce the effort.

Hard work is more physical effort, less mental effort whereas smart work is less physical effort, high mental effort.

I would like to explain this by an example.

I have given an axe to a man to cut a tree. He will do his best to complete his task. This is smart work but if he sharps the axe then he cut the tree this is smart work. Smart work required less time compared to hard work but need more mental effort.

Hard work: Keep an eye on work and work until reach the goal.
Smart work: Keep an eye on work and build the strategy that finds what are the possible way to reach the goal then work for the way.

Hard work: (More physical effort and less mental effort)
Pros: Gain knowledge in all small bits of topic, success is sure
Cons: In deadline(limit duration) situation hard work, not success always ,more effort, feel frustration, time taking , upgrading position is slower

Smart work: (More mental effort and less physical effort)
Pros: Deadline task is always successful, less effort, less time consuming, upgrading position is faster
Cons: Gets knowledge in selected topic

P.S. Although, there is hard work behind every smart work.

In hard work, we will use our whole effort and power for doing a particular task. Whereas in smart work, we don't need to effort whole power. Have to complete a task in a logical manner in a less time.

I could be explained with an example.

If a hard worker is given an axe and Is asked to cut the tree he would give his best and try to cut the tree with his sheer power.

Whereas a smart worker would first spend some time to sharp his axe then would go for cutting the tree.

Hard work is doing work physically and smart work is doing work logically but while working on any project we require both hard work and smart work. For example, If we attend the lecture of our class then we can easily study that subject. For doing smart work hard work is necessary.

Example for Hard Work: Reaching the Building through steps is Hard work.

Example for Smart Work: Reaching the Building though Lift is Smart Work.

If the Lift stops in between one can't reach the destination. If he uses steps Definitely he will reach the destination.

Smart work is a strategically planned work. As in looking out on a path to give us a result and then following that path to accomplish it.

Hard work is working rigorously but it's not always sure to give you the required results.
