I can explain about the difference between hard work and smart work in my opinion.

Hard work: just like steps when you want to go building along with steps you definitely reach our goal but a lot of time taken.

Smart work: just like the lift is a smart work you can reach our goal shortly. But sometimes lift is repairing.

Hard work means carrying out an activity in a traditional way which may consume more manpower or energy or cost or time or any combination of them or a combination of all of them.

Smart work means carrying out the same activity which is done in a traditional way by using state of the art method i.e. by using advanced tools and techniques which save manpower and/or energy and/or cost and/or time.

A method used today which is considered smart may become hard work after some time when human thinking ability/technology advances.

Key difference: Hard Work is when one does some work dedicatedly. Smart work is when someone does the same amount of work, but faster and more efficiently.

Most self-help gurus will advocate this fact, that in order to succeed, one must work hard at it.

Hard work is when one does the work more dedicatedly. But smart work is when one does the same work in less time and more efficiently.

Shortly smart work is nothing but hard work in the right direction.

Hard work is the basis of smart work. Without hard work, no one can do smart work. Eg. If one is preparing for exams then he will go for short trick which is a smart work but for learning those tricks we have to do a lot of hard work.

Yes, it is true smart work save our time and efficiency but for this make possible he has done a lot of hard work before.

According to me,

As our elders always remind us that without hard work nothing will be achieved I totally agree with that but now a days work should be completed time to time for that new ideas, logics and innovation involves in the work so that the work can be completed in a given period of time for ex: if a project is given in a school to complete within 3 days then hard worker will starts the work since the day the work is announced but the smart worker gathers put his present ideas and past ideas and make a commparision in the work and makes it innovative and logical.

Smart work is skill acquired from hard work.

Everyone in their initial stages did hard work to gain reputation.

Smart work is the sheer reflection of experienced and skill set gained from the days when one worked hard.

Hard work is doing things blindly.

Eg:- a work is assigned to you & you just devote your everything to that task.

Smart work.

When a work is assigned to you, you analyze the work part of work which needs extra work give their that effort.

Before starting the work you have rough idea of what to do & what not to do.

Then you pace your efforts & get the work done.

Hard work is a part of smart work. Hard work gives you experience and smart work came from experience. Hard work uses physical strength, consume much time and produces less result but smart work uses physical as well as mental strength and save our time and produce an efficient result. Even the labour do hard work. Spending a lot of hours and getting less productivity is hard work, spending less time and high productivity is smart work.

Eg. If you are studying the whole day and completing 3 chapters and another one who is just studying 4 hours and completed 3 chapter will be a smart worker.

I think, Hard work is done against the conditions whereas Smart work can be done by doing conditions in favour of work.

For example, if we want to extract out water from a well- Against the gravity is hard work whereas with the help of pulley is smart work.

According to me, in hard work, there is no need to increase our knowledge &value system. But in order to do smart work firstly, you should be smart & you will have to increase your value system & upgrade your knowledge. Since we are running in 21th century so we must go for smart work if we want to stand developed.

Hard work is not only the physical strength, It is also mental efforts you put in it.

While smart work requires a lot of hard work and patience to gather the experiences.

From past and to utilise them in present as well as future,

So in my option, both are necessary to attain a particular goal.

According to me, hard work is related to our physical strength and smart work is done mentally.

For success, both are required like steering and accelerator in car which direct and give necessary speed to reach our destination.

Efficiently doing any work is smart work. The process is optimized and fast where the resources are widely used in this case. On contrary, hard work consumes time, energy as well as resources: at times they might exhaust you.

Yeah, with no doubt hard work pays in long term but we are practically not here to put all of our resources in doing that bull work rather with intelligence so called in a smart way we can utilise the same resources to complete the same degree of work that is called smart work.

Hello everyone.

As we know that all the things we do in our life have a particular impact in our lives. Either it is hard work or smart work.

Hard work generally deals with your efforts which you put in any particular field physically and mentally as well. Hard work just not means only the physical strength but the mental efforts you put in it.

On the other side, Smart work deals with the efficient and effective measures used to do work with mental ability. It requries lot of hardwork and patience to gather the experiences from past and to utilise them in present as well as future. So in my opinion both are necessary to attain a particular goal.
