Hard work is a physical process. It takes more diligence with your body. It can take a long time to do any work. After having done hard work we get to experience.

Whereas smart work is a mental process which saves the time compared to hard work.

Smart work comes with experience.

'I can do this'.
This is confidence because I am making a statement on myself since I know what my ability is.

Hard work - It means that you work in a gruelling manner; for instance, spending 10+ hours studying for an exam.

Smart work - Smart work can go hand in hand with hard work. But 'smart work' means that you use an efficient method to finish a particular task. For instance, referring the above example, you use a specific method to study for an exam that saves your time, as well as prepares you for it perfectly.

Both hard work and smart work give solution for a particular problem but smart work gives a solution in a minimum time with more brain usage than hard work.

Ultimately, smart work is the best option to save time as well as to improve mental ability/skill/knowledge.

The idea that you should work smarter, not only harder isn't anything new. When talking about the difference between smart and hard work it's pretty simple to explain what working hard means. If you want to be successful in the long run, you have to put long hours into work.

Sir, I would like to give an example- consider if X amount of work is done in particular time then the same amount of work could be achieved in less time with the help of some ideas or modification in process. Which will not only reduces the time and load but also increase s efficiency? And that is the main difference between both.
