Thank you.

Hard work means when oneself work for their goal intensively.

Whereas Smart work implies when someone works according to the requirement specially when there is shortage of time. Very important and necessary tasks are chosen to be included for better outcome in case of smart work.

Smart work = Lord Ganesh.

Hard work = Lord Muruga.

As per Hindu scriptures and various mythological stories, we find that Narada Muni is so popular in creating trouble. Once Narada visited Lord Shiva & Parvati and gifted a fruit to them, saying that they should give it to the person whom they liked the most.

Shiva & Parvati thought of giving the fruit to one of his two children Ganesha & Kartikeya. They got in trouble deciding who is the favourite child to Shiva & Parvati as they loved both of their children equally. Then, they set a test for Ganesha and Kartikeya. The parents asked them to circle the world three times and who came back first would be the winner and got the fruit as a prize.

According to Hindu belief, almost all gods have a vahana(vehicle). Kartikeya immediately mounted on his vahana, the peacock, and made a quick trip around the earth three times.

On the other hand, Ganesha understood that his vahana, the mouse, would not be able to compete with the peacock and he could never beat Kartikeya. He thought for a while and walked around his parents, Shiva & Parvati, three times with full devotion.

Surprized Shiva & Parvati, asked Ganesha why he was moving around them. Ganesha replied, "My parents pervade the whole universe and moving around them is more than moving around the earth. " Ganesha's intelligence made him win the race. Kartikeya, on returning back, accepted the superiority of Ganesha. Ganesha got the fruit as a prize.

To complete a given task in specified time JUST to achieve it. Is hard work. To be more clear if m given a task to complete in a week. Working a week long is hard work and doing it in a way which saves time and fatigue is smart work. Doing something with stress all over you, with clock on your head is hard work. Keeping it simple and working calm attitude is smart work.

Hard work is very difficult without using smart work. Smart work means doing work using intelligence and hard work is doing work physically. Hard work is like without cable connection of TV and smart work is WiFi connection on TV.

I would like to answer this question in a technical manner. Suppose we have to make a program to swap two numbers. We can do it in two ways.

When we write a program using a third variable as a temporary storage then it is a called as hard work. However, if we solve the same problem without using a third variable then is a called as smart work.

I think,

To work smart, means instead of jumping into and doing the work from the word go, you plan it properly, so that when you do the work, your efficiency is optimum, in terms of physical labour or anything else of consideration.

But, from what I've learned, mostly from my academic career, to be able to work smart, you need to do it the hard way first, then once you know about the nooks and crannies of it, you're set to do it the smart way.

To plough the field using bulls and plough is hard work.
To plough the field using tractor is smart work.
In hard work input is more and output is less.
Whereas in smart work with less input we get more output.

Smart Work is doing the same work in a more efficient way than hard work. (efficiency in time, money or any other parameter).

For example, while clearing your aptitude test, you require solving questions quickly. You can opt for the traditional methods (methods of class 9th and 10th) or the short cuts. The choice is your's - the hard way or the smarter way.

The period of time which has been take over to finish the work is the main difference between Hard work and smart work.

Ex- A hard worker took 3 days to finish a work while a smart worker took only 2 days. This is the difference.

Note:- both of them completed the task.

The difference between working hard and working smart is specified time period for the end of this work. Whenever the shortest Period was hard and whenever the longest was smart.

Whatever the working must be smart (skill and knowledge) and be hard (devotion).

Hard work doesn't possess any individuality where as smart work exhibits your own specialty and individuality. An example is, A task of cutting a tree is given to a hard worker and a smart worker. Duration taken should be not more than half an hour.

Result: Hard worker completed the task at the end of 30th minute and the smart worker completed it within 20 minutes.

Secret behind the smart worker is 'he sharpened his axe for every time interval of 5 minutes'.

Sir,

Hard work and smart work will be depending upon the situation we face.

If there is an emergency (harder situations), we have to choose the smart work to get out of it and in the times of proving yourself what you are, it's better to go for hard work instead of escaping through smart work.

Without hard work cannot do the smart work and vice versa. Hard work means doing the work without any plan to achieve the goal. But Smart work means doing the work in proper planned way to reach the goal and smart work is also used to develop our skills. Hard Work gives experience and smart work gives skills and knowledge. Hard Work is dedication, smart work is perfection.

Hard work and smart work are done by a person who is highly knowledgable. Coming to hard work, hard work is learning a subject thoroughly and where as smart work is knowing where to use the knowledge which has been read.

Both of them are equally required for a person to grow in his career.

Smart work is a complement of hard work if you are smart with mind. If you have strong intention to achieve your goals, you do hard work and the smartness comes along. But only if you apply your smartness in everything, nothing great will be happened. Hard work is the only key to achieve something big.
