Hard work has more to do with physical brute force or effort while Smart work is more of intellectual power.

Examples: 1. The PEN (smart) is mightier than the SWORD (hard work).

2. The PIPELINE BUILDER (smart) vs the BUCKET CARRIER (hark work) in their quest to supply a village with water as told by Robert Kiyosaki.

3. If you want to go FAST (hard work), go alone. If you want to go FAR (smart work), go together. As contained in an African proverb.

Well! I think, both are the sides of a coin and both are pretty much important to get the work done. Hard work includes your physical effort to a particular task and smart work is the way you do that particular task. Smart work includes your creativity and the knowledge about that specific job. It depends on the task you have been given.

Hard work is a must. It has no alternative based on a situation. Smart work sometimes working but not all situation. Both are required and complementary. It can't expect smart techniques could be innovative. Sometimes hard work is required. Smart working is the result of observations and experience nothing else. Above all, preparation is a must through hard working and smart techniques. Time is a valuation asset. People should always try to make the best utilization through hard and smart techniques.

For completing any job we need a hard work that should be smart. For me hard work means putting your best efforts with utmost dedication, even when you have to work beyond your working hours, but when we do the same work while using our skills rationally which helps in saving our time it becomes a smart work.

Let us take an example to describe hard work and smart work.

You've asked to submit the 10 copy of the same typed letter with given format and details.

Hard Work - You are typing all the letters one by one with keyboard and your typing skills.

Smart Work - You've just copied and pasted it with just a few clicks of a mouse.

Hard work is necessary without hard work we can't achieve the goal. Nowadays smart work is more demanded. If we want to send information anyone we use letter, call, email. We appreciate only those who sends fast, low cost. So the company wants smart work. Save money, save time and good production successfully in a proper way.
