Subject known people will do HARD WORK. Subject unknown people will do SMART WORK. HARD WORK will confirm (IMMEDIATE) positive result. SMART WORK may or may not. For me, delay result also considers as the failure.

Hard work and smart work is interrelated, It almost depends on each others.

If one works hard at initial stages then He would be a smart worker,

Initial days of hard work give us good amount of knowledge and wisdom.

Which would gives us to take the right decision at right time. Hope you all it is correct.

Continuous hard work results in smart work. For eg. If you are continuously working on a difficult task by using several methods then you are doing HARD WORK and then finally you will reach the solution AFTER that you will club up your all efforts and will make a new approach in solving the problem which YOU CAN USE IN FUTURE as your SMART WORK.

Hard work is just completing any task without applying much of any ideas, no thinking out of the box concept unlike where in smart work we will think out of the box, add some creativity, innovativeness to it.

Hard work is like pulling a huge square shaped boulder whereas smart work is making it round so that it can be moved easily.
