If some one is doing hard work than he/she may not have vision and goal but only see that how work can complete and be complacent. And if some one is doing smart work, he/she may be having vision, goal and focus on his/her work and may reach to the day of success.

I think hard work is to follow a regular and difficult path to reach your destiny while smart work is the easiest shortcut to that destiny.

I try to clarify the question by considering small example, that If I give you a table containing 10 columns and 5 rows, and I asked you to find the total number of cells in the table. If you count each cell and say answer as 50, then you are hard worker. And If you multiply no of columns and no of rows and say answer as 50, then you are smart worker.

The work which is done directly without thinking once is hard work and the work which is done by thinking and doing easily without manhandling is called smart work.

Sir I will try to explain this with analogy with one statement.

We always say " Practice Makes a Man Perfect ".

But what I will say is "Perfect Practice Makes a Man Perfect".

Sir just practice is Hard work and perfect practice is the smart work.

Smart work is the work in which brain gets to work which involves in wisdom and experiences around where as in hard work only body gets to work and get strained.

Now a days both smart and hard work are needed, a person who works both hardly and smartly will always be successful.

So both the works are interrelated but think smartly and work hardly this makes a person to be successful everywhere.

Simply:

Hard work is like 1+1+1+1+1 = 5.

Smart work is like 1*5 = 5.

In my point of view. If you are working in a repetitive process. When you use hard work you couldn't hit that much count, but when work smarter i.e (browsing search engines for particular Technology and Tricks) that will enhance your performance, efficiency, and more over accuracy.

According my point of view in both cases the result same. Main difference is the path of working. In case hard work you have physical strength and other side the smart work requires mental strength. Smart work consumes less time.

Hard work is work with physical strength and mental capability.

But smart work is the work to use more your head in planning, shortcuts to maximize the productivity, which comes with experience and open the gate to smart work.

Both are inter related. Smart work is how to make maximum result from hard work.

For (e.g) going to coaching classes by a bicycle with 10 mins late is hard work. Going to coaching classes by a taxi at exact time is smart work.

Both are equal, every one will have to phase these both works at least once in their life. But sometimes we have to do hard work and some times we have do smart work.

If you take one work without any planing and experience that time you have to do hard work and if you take one work with experience as well as well know person about that work that time you have do smart work.

It keeps you fit and fine but smart work makes you lazy and it becomes a habitual thing. I recommend the hard work because it works a lot.

Hard work is doing the task in described/systematized/conventional way.

Smart work is creating a new way which the task is to be done in an unconventional way.

Result will be same in both the cases.

In my view, hard work is good and leads to success but requires time and smart work is better than that to get result but if any one can do hard work with the supplement of smartness leads to best result.

There is a lot difference between hard work and smart work. In general terms hard work is also done by donkey but if only hard work is there in life then donkey would have been the king of the world.

As far as smart work is there it means to put in efforts where there is more productivity and the positive outcomes are high.

Smart work is planed activity which insures achievement of goal using minimum input. While hard work is random efforts without proper planning. Hard work is not goal oriented, smart work is goal oriented way of working. Smart work refers to working with maximum efficiency, less stress to mind and body.

Hard work : When a person is putting all possible efforts to achieve something, it takes time.

Smart work : When a person is picking the most optimized solution for a particular problem and putting efforts, less time consuming.

Both work is equal because its depend type of work.

If you will do work without planing that you have to do hard work and if you will plan do work that's call smart work.

There is just one basic difference between the two. Any work that involves even the slightest amount of planning and improvisation can be said to be smart work. Any work done in a better way making it 'more' efficient is smart work. (any smart work can itself be hard work. But it can be still be called smart work as it is better and less tedious than its inferior way).

Hard work is the work done by us by pressuring or imposing fear of timing of completion of work with no proper time management. Smart work is the work we do taking into consideration the time as well as our intelligence.

Hard work lacks our brilliance to some extent but smart work doesn't lack our brilliance and focus on time as well as complete optimization of our skills.
