As for my view, hard work means doing the work with full focus and concentration all the knowledge you know about that to apply with full physical and mental work and smart work is doing the work easily with less wastage time saving and with 100percent efficiency.

For e.g. to complete a team work on time.

Assigning an equal task to all members and work day and night - hard work.
Assigning a member task he/she is proficient at- smart work.

Hardwork:-one boy who does not have any idea about next exam syllabus and he is doing (Study) all the things. And of course, he will get good marks as he was doing everything. Its called hard work (without any direction).

Smartwork:- another boy who has an idea about next exam syllabus and he is just doing only that things which help him to get good marks. Its called smart work. (with direction).

Hard working is a way of approaching and accomplishing a task while smart working is an optimized way of doing the same task. Experience is an aid to smart work.

Freshers are always hardworking while a professional is smart working.

We have to work hard to work smart, because without working hard, one won't get the chance to work smart.

Working smart without working hard means that one don't want to sharpen his skills. Working hard and not getting success is worthless and working smart without getting the skills developed is worthless.

There is no smart work without hard work. Having said that I stick to the saying "If I have to cut a tree within 10 hours, I would sharpen my knife for the first 9 hours". So, knowing where to put effort and where not to work hard is smart work.

I would say smart work comes from hard work only. As there is one theory also that 'Work hard until you get smart. So, in my point of view you can do smart work only if you have work harder in your life.

Hard work - lets take an example of examination, if a person is studying all the modules in the syllabus is called hard work.

Smart work - if the same person understand the pattern of the question paper and find the important question that are repeated over a few years that's smart work.

A smarter worker is the one who does thing smartly. That means he knows people from whom he believes in delegation of work while keeping minimal amount of work with him but.

A harder worker on the other hand puts long hours every day, probably doing the same thing again and again.

Hard work is when you don't have the tools, resources and time to complete a task well. Smart work is having a plan and the equipment/skills necessary to be successful. It is comfortable, natural to you.

According to me, hard work to do with power, energy but smart work to do with enjoy. Hard work is a straight way to success. And smart work more way to success. Hard work to do taken more time for completing work and smart work to do less time for completing work.

Thanks.

I think there is no difference between hard work and smart work, rather I would say smart work is the extension of hard work as hard work gives you experience and smart work comes from experience. So untill, you have the experience you cannot work smartly.

According to me,

Hard work means Completing minimum work with maximum time and maximum cost. (Effective work: Work completed on time but incurs high cost).

Whereas smart work refers to completing maximum work in minimum time and in minimum cost i.e.(Effective and efficient work means completing work on time or before time with less cost).

For me, Hard work makes us more capable, and of course, bring more potential gradually, but remember it never fails. Slowly- slowly, today or tomorrow you would definitely be at the peak of success.

And the Smart work, Well it takes short time, No doubt. But it doesn't mean that you would success every time.

I think smart work is a by-product of hard work. When you work hard for a project (suppose on Java) then the next project on java will not require much hard work.
