Hard work means doing the complete work full fledgedly within the assigned time or deadline but when it comes to smart work completing the work full fledgedly before assigned time.

Smart work is much better than hard work because it saves lots of time. And the remaining time can be used to complete another work.

Hard work is spending all the necessary time, effort and mental abilities with the flexibility to achieve the desired end results.

Smart work is a computer (computerized), it does work correctly and accomplishes according to the programming but rather static.

Hard work means putting in a lot of time and effort doing a certain amount of work. Whereas, smart work means spending less amount of time performing the same amount of work. Hard work aims at the quantity and may become monotonous and boring after a certain period. Smart work aims at achieving goals with quality.
