Hard work is blind efforts taken without any perspective or goal. Calculations form a latter part. But smart work is understanding the goal and taking every step in a calculated way. Efficient utilization of the brain and resources is done.

Sir/Mam.

I would say Hard work is 10 mark question so write briefly explanation is need and then Smart work is a 2 mark question so write answer in 2 line that's enough.

Sir I would say hard work is where you give your all effort and push yourself to the limit. While smart work is where you analyze the job to finish it as fast and as good as possible, so hard work is the key to to be a smart worker.

Sir/mam.

Hard work means high effort for doing work (even physically or mentally),

Smart work means less effort for doing same work.

Sir/Madam, hard work means a process in which a person do more physically work and body play an important role. But smart work is a process in which a person do more mentally work and brain play an important role.

Or in my words sir/madam, hard working is a first step to become smart worker because no one can become smart worker without doing hard working.

Simply Hard work means work done by putting physical efforts, it gives you experience.

Where as smart work comes through experience here work is done by putting mental efforts.

Time plays an important factor to differentiate hard work and smart work. If we have sufficient time then always go for hard work. It increases the knowledge. But if we are short of time then go for smart work. But overall hard work is better than smart work.

Sir, I want to explain hard work and smart work with an example. There were two woodcutters, one woodcutter used to cut trees for 8 hours continuously without sharpening his axe and got tired by his work. This is hard work but not that much productive. Second one used to spend 4 hours to sharpen the axe and 4 hours to cut the trees. He didn't suffer that much fatigue and productivity was also good. This is called smart work.

Smart work and hard work both are link with each other, but important thing do first smart work because brain is top of the body and other part is down part of our body.

Sir, I want to explain hard work and smart work with an example. Before exams my friends use to read only those topics which are in syllabus but not the whole book. And what I do I used to read the whole book and try to go deep of every topic.

So sir the first 1 is the smart work and second 1 is the hard work. But you know what is the benefit of reading whole book. If there is a topic comes out of syllabus I'm able to do that topic. So sometimes smart work cheats you at some stages but hard work always pays and according to this example hard work will also gives you more knowledge.

Sir I really believe that smart work is coming from hard work. When you work hard on a project you know all difficulties that you have faced while doing that so next time when you perform that work you'll definitely do with smarter way.

Hard work: Doing any work in a such way that takes more time and more resources is hard work.

Smart work: Doing same work in a such efficient way that takes less time and less resources, produces the same output is smart work.

Hard work is learn, understand and complete right things. Smart work is learn, understand and do things right. Eg: To give a hungry man some fish is hard work because you work for him and for yourself. To give the knowledge for man how to catch fish feeds not only him but you can ask him to give some fish.

Hard work & Smart work both the result will be same, but the main difference is hard work we should give the force in the sense of physical manner where as smart work we should give the force in the sense of mentally, but without hard work there is no smart work.

Hard work is doing job the way it is needed to be done in a predefined way not thinking so much about else ways but just doing it constantly without stopping and getting it done whereas smart work is doing the same job in a lesser time listening to all the advices given choosing those which we like and adding all our sharp mind in the completion of the task in a much better and efficient way.

But, In other case rather than putting more and more efforts try to do it more easily and faster by smart thinking is called 'Smart work'.

Smart work results from working hard.

I wanna give one example here.

When we practice mathematics if we solve the problem again & again then we reduce the steps in every next attempt. This make us work smart without much effort when we do different sort of problem after that.

Hard work and knowledge goes hand in hand where as wisdom and smart work get along well. Hard work is like a regular approach to a task where as smart work is getting some probability to the work. Knowing tomato a fruit is knowledge but putting it in right salad is wisdom. I hope I have made it clear with my approach. !

The Major difference between hard work and smart work is only that in hard work person does is work step by step without using brain and doing it in traditional way as all have done earlier. Since there is large effort required in hard work still not preferred in industry. Smart work requires mental abilities to get work done easily. A work is said to be accomplished smartly if it fulfilling the requirements within a specific time and with less physical and mental stress. Ut the major difference between hard work and Smart work is that following a linear series of step to complete a work without using skill is hard work. If there is use of skills to efficiently accomplish a targeted work is the smart work.

Sir, I believe that both are essential/ fundamental keys to succeed in the life and gives same results but follows different approaches.

In " hard-work " we work with full of dedication, commitment and concentration to achieve the given goal at any cost and we give our best, but it may consumes more time, energy, efforts and resources/materials.

Whereas,

In " smart-work " we use the combined approach that should be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time bounded to achieve the given goal.

Hard work is about how much tasks you can handle and complete, and it's about your strength and sustain.

On the overhand, smart work is about your strategies, plan and way of thinking.

Of course in any type of work you may find the two types of work but only the smart guy can handle both of them.

Smart work is nothing but doing hard work in methodical way. Suppose you have to finish a book in two days. You can do it by two ways. 1) you can finish that book by reading the topics in haphazard way. 2) you can finish the book by reading it topicwise. First 1 is hard work. 2nd is smart work.
