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 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.

A work never be hard or smart. If a person simply follow the instructions which is already given to do the work then the person is hard worker. But if person do the work by it own skills and knowledge then the person is smart worker.

Simply hard working means to the work without seeing time how much it is required to complete work.

And smart work means to complete work with some innovative idea or do some invention regarding completing works.

Thank you.

Efficient and planned way of doing hard work is called smart work.
(Or)
When we do hard work in order to get higher yield within limited time, then its a smart work.
(Or)
Doing hard work can make you a teacher in that field but doing smart work can make you a leader in that field.

Great points guys.

To add, a work is not hard and smart for all. A work can be hard for me but smart for another and vice verse.

I believe hard work is any work that uses more of your strength, time, ability, more of critical, physical and energy, there by exhausting you. While smart work I believe is the ease pace, sharpness and quickness at which you do a work.

According to my view,

Hard work & smart work both are important for getting qualitative and quantitative results, without doing hardworking we can't become smart worker.

Simple and Best Example.

As we all know what is hard work and what is small work. But it will be better by expressing our views by giving one single and simple example.

Based on Cricket,

Hard Work : Scoring a century without hitting boundaries (i.e, taking only ones and twos) is a hard work.

Smart Work : Scoring a century by hitting only boundaries (i.e, Hitting only fours and sixes) is smart work.

In my view,

Smart work is a skill of intelligently working and hard work is an attitude/dedication towards work. An intelligent hard worker will surely turn into a smart worker but not necessarily a smart worker is a hard worker.

Hard work is nothing but using physical effort.

Smart work is nothing but using brain.

Lets us take a simple person, if a person needs to climb 100 floors in 1 minute, then if he climbs by steps it hard work, and if he uses the lift its smart work.

If I complete my work before the given period that's called as smart work. But we need lot of skills and experience for smart work. Through the hard work we can get experience and skills. So both are very important in our life.

Thank you for this question sir,

In my respect hard work is that in which you give your all efforts to achieve a goal.

But smart work is that in which you give a particular effort to achieve a particular goal.

Smart Work should be subset of Hard Work.

Plan your work is smart. Squeeze more out of your brain is hard work within smart work.

Depends on your point of view these two phrase can output different meaning.

Hard work is that in which you give your input more and get less.

Whereas in smart work you give your effort less and get more output.

According to my view,

Hard work means to take effort to do the work until it get succeed.

Smart work means to do the work in a fruitful and cunning manner.

To illustrate the above saying, let us take one example,

If I had a paper tomorrow then I start preparing the chapter one-one until I finish the exam syllabus- Hard work.

If I had a paper tomorrow, then first and foremost thing I carefully study the syllabus, then see the previous question paper which chapter give more weight age, first I will prepare that chapter then move on to the next chapter - Smart Work.

Hard work may be directed or undirected, skilled or unskilled but smart work is essentially skilled and all the unnecessary actions are cut short to reduce the time and effort which basically benefits the organisation.

Hard work and smart work both are equally important to success, completing the work in a limited time with the existing resources and infrastructure is smart work.

Hard work helps you in exploring and experimenting many things.

So, we need to adapt both to achieve success in our life.

Thanks!

Everyone knows what is hard work and what is smart work. So rather I would say. Smart work will workout for who is very brainy and knows how to react at the time of a problem, not everyone has that ability.

But, hard work works for everyone who do it sincerely with dedication and it is the trigger for getting a smarter mind.

Hard work takes time because we do any work without planning and smart work takes more less time because of planning but "hard work is a key of smart work" firstly we do hard work then we get experience after that we use smart work.

Hard work, where person perform their job without any plan, they put their 100% effort to achieve the goal.

But in Smart work, person perform their job by well plan, and they put their all effort to achieve, not only the goal but unique identity also.

Sir,

If we complete a work or any project in day or few days, it is hard work but if we do same work in few hours, it is smart work but without hard work we can't do smart work because with hard work a person get experience which is makes a person able to do smart work.
