Hard work and smart work are correlated to each other. Smart work comes after hard work. If a person is not experienced then he chooses hard work. After a lot of experience he will now move toward smart work because now he is at such a level to judge whether things can be done either by hard work or smart work. So we can say that for a smart work person have to cross the phase of hard work.

Smart work is the outcome of hard work. Once we decide to do hard work we get knowledge which makes us smart and helps us to complete assigned tasks with efficiency which is nothing but smart work.

When we apply our full strength and performance for a long time to achieve success, it is called hard work but when we reduce our time by doing logical smart thinking with our brain achieving the same goal, its called smart work.

Hard work means : In our school days we can learn formulas (+-*/).

Smart work mean : We can implement those formulas & we can solve big problem.

According to me smart work is a sub part of hard work because hard work gives the knowledge and knowledge makes us smarter.

Smart work is something which follows hard work. When we do hard work then we get the new ways to do the same same work smartly so there is no smart work without hard work.

In my view there is no much difference between Hard work and Smart work. If we apply all our possible efforts to perform a task it relates to hard work. But in some cases hard work own can't workout, that time we should be able to think a little out of our mind (in a broad and logical way which makes the task easy) which refers to smart work.

Hi, there is no short-cut to hard work, over a period of time with consistently working hard you learn to do the task/job in hand in a more simplified manner which is termed as smart work. So in nutshell smart work is the product of persistent hard working.

Sir, if I want to tell the difference. For example, if you give the toughest work to a hard worker, he will work hard. But if you give the same work to laziest person, then it seems you are doing the smart work. Because you know that the laziest person will find easy way to complete the work.

Thank you.

From my point of view if a person works with full determination definitely he will succeed as hard work always pays off on the other side if we see smart work could be done by someone else and credit goes to some other then for that person there is no learning may be he has got the final output but what's the use of that output when he has not learnt anything.

Therefore, whether a person goes for hard work or smart work he should have learnt something.

Smart work is like something that you will get only by experience, proper planning and how much perfect you are in that particular task and all this will come with hard work. So in a run of becoming a smart the first step is always hard work that both terms are somewhat related. That can be explained by one phrase "PRACTICE MAKES A MEN PERFECT". Here practice is a second name of hard work.

Lets take a example:

When we study each and every topics for exam and then start revising it, it is hard work. But when we study important topics and go through last 10 year solved paper which automatically covers whole syllabus and also give you knowledge of how to answer those questions and also while going through solved paper you are actually revising it and again is smart work.

So in smart work you are doing a lot things together but in hard work you are doing each and every task such that it takes a lot of time resulting giving you similar output.

Hard work means do more achieve less whereas smart work means do less achieve more, it normally happens when you work in a TEAM, whereas hard workers normally work throughout their life with 1 mind 2 hands and with egoistic mindset that is why 80% of people have 20% money and on other hand 20% people have 80% money.

Hard work means the work that can be done by anyone if they are determined to do, it doesn't require any creative thinking any one can do it. Whereas smart work requires creative way of thinking where only some people can have and can do it.

Hard work means start doing any work without setting any time limit of completion with traditional way (taking full load of work on his own shoulders).

Smart work is quite professional in manner (its a team work basically by contributing responsibilities equally to other colleagues also) by calculating not even the time line but also the benefits and side effects of it.

If the people who are finished their work with great effort and more tension is called hard work. And the same work is finished by their much more effort and having innovative idea but less tension is called smart work.

If we finished the job through hard work we feel happy. But if we are finished the same job through smart work we feel more enjoyable.

Any work with body and mind is hard work;whereas any work with body, mind and soul is smart work. So smart work is byproduct of hard work. If we want to become smart worker-practice hard work, continuous work without tiring.
