Smart Work Meaning Doing Your Work Efficiently. Efficiently Means using Less Resources that includes "Time, Physical work, Mental Work, resources (money, things etc)".

Any thing that consumes less of these are Smart Work.

Ex: Cutting a tree with a Blunt Axe - The TIME taken is More. The Physical Work is More.

Cutting a tree with a sharpened Axe - Saves TIME. Less Physical Work. That is smart work.

All are related to each other.

Hard work is to start the given task immediately and analyzing it as the work goes on.

Smart work is to analyse the task and its requirements first and then start to work upon it. Which leads to completion of the task in less span of time.

Experience with hard work eventually leads to one's smart work.

Hard work is using your heart like you have the so called "passion" to work. Unlike with smart work you're just doing it using your skills and unique talent without love. You're just doing your work because they are paying for you to do your job and to satisfied your boss.

Thank you.

Hard work requires person whereas smart work require person ability.

Hard work means physical effort whereas smart work means mental effort in case of earn money.

Hard work can be done with mind and heart whereas smart work can be done with mind. Hard work is learning a subject thoroughly and where as smart work is knowing where to use the knowledge which has been read.

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.
