I agree with that smart work saves time and allows you to get goals faster than hard work but in the present scenario, there is much competition everywhere so only smart work might not lead you to success so I think rather than comparing both we should do hard work smartly.

Hard work is what a Labour does.
Smart work is that, what a contractor does.

Ex. While constructing a huz a labour works hard a lot and the contractor orders labours. The income is high for a contractor but not for the Labour. So instead hard work change it to smart work.

According to me :.

Hard work = more efforts but less work.
Smart work = in the less effort we can do more work.

For example : if are going to 5th floor and we using stairs this is hard work.

And if we use lift for going to 5th floor then this is smart work and we are saving our energy.

Hard work is in which we only do physical activity for complete any work.

Smart work is that work in which we do same activity in a smarter way because in an organisation if you have big problem and have less time to solve that problem than if you know how the smarter way to do work you can do it easily. In short, smart way is make any thing more innovative and less time efficient.

Hard work means more efforts but less output whereas smart work means less efforts more output. But in my point of view, though smart work produces more output hard work is too broad our knowledge and concepts.

Deepak said: (Jun 19, 2017)  
I think smart work is the way of doing hard work for Eg. If you are preparing for a certain competitive exam it will be good if you plan your preparation smartly and work harder on it you will definitely succeed but if you only work hard for it without any smart planning than chances for you getting selected will be reduced. So both hard and smart work are inseparable from achieving a target you require both.

Smart work basically deals with your mental aptitude and intelligence. How you do the exact same kind of work in different more efficient ways.

Hard work deals with a predefined path which is definitely going to take you to your destination. It may not define your intelligence but it surely defines your gratitude, discipline and obligation towards your work.

Hard working is simply working hard and not finding or executing any easier techniques or methods to do them in an easier way. People who work hard spend most of their time in doing a particular work only.

Smart worker those who execute their plans in a smarter way and deal with situations in a smarter way.

Work is essential for every person. If any person don't have work so they are nothing in the eyes of people. Work are two types hard work and smart work. Hard work takes too much time to do any kind of work whereas smart takes very less time to do any type of work. In other words, smart work is better than the hard work because smart work saves lots of time.

Hard-work and smart work both belongs to each other there is a relation between them if we want to crack any exam we plan and trying to work according that and execute the plans but some time we failed we did hardwork for achieving that goal, hard work is not about to have a physical effort but we need to execute well with time management there is something we plan which we called smart way for achieving the goal.

When we do some work with more efforts and time then it's hard work.

But when we do same work with fewer efforts and time then it's a smart work.

(Here's no matter what type of work is there it may be physical work or mental work).
