Both are necessary to achieve success. If a work complete with planing. Then we can say that this way is a smart working way.

If we try to solve a problem without planing but the result came 100%. This way is hard-working way.

Hard work shows that the person is trying hard to achieve a particular goal or aim and smart work is nothing more than achieving the goal but in an efficient way. At last, the most important thing to be taken care is that only a hard-working person can lead to smart work as only he will know the most efficient way to achieve the goal.

According to me, hard work and smart work are both interlinked with each other. Rather, I can say both are dependent on each other. Smart work will only be done when we have done Hard work in the past. So Hard work is basically a devotion while smart work is an application.

The main difference is that in hard work we start putting in efforts without really thinking a course for our action while smart work is thinking about the course of our action and then working hard. So both involve hard work but smart work involves a much more direct approach where you concentrate your hard work directly to achieve your goal.

According to me, hard work means stressing, working effectively hard to complete a particular task on/ in time.

While on the other hand smart work means extracting the task in an indirect way rather than working hard.

Example- consider two students A and B.

A study day and night. But B studies only important questions. Both A and B passes the examination. A denotes hard work.

B denotes smart work.
