Doing any job sincerely and with dedication to achieve the end result is hard work. Its a very important element.

Whereas smart work is Planning things in advance, apply technique to it, use technology, execute the job as planned.

Both lead to the same end result. But smart work will result in saving in time, effort, money, materials and give a better output.

Hard work means person does work to solve the problem in any situation.

Smart work means analyze problem and find optimal solution so that problem can be solved and also best solution can be achieved.

Hard work is the usual approach for accomplishing a task where as smart work is a little bit more intelligent approach for accomplishing the same. However both are positive and required approach, just depending on the need.

Smart work involves more analyzing and understanding of the situation and problem.

Every one can work hard but smart work serves better.

Both may give the same solution but how it is attained matters.

Nice question sir,

Hard work: doing one work we have to spent more time and more money and it take more hardness. But it will give best result.

Smart work: we will do the same work in a simple and cool manner. It may give the best result or may not give it.

If the same work allotted to a skilled labour /technician and an Engineer then engineer will apply his engineering knowledge and that will be smart work.

Always smart work is better than hard work because we don't have smart technique of doing work on that time hard work is better we are thinking smart thats right but we don't have any smart alternative for work we use hard work in procedure manner.

Nice question asked by you sir, the basic difference between hard work and smart work is time taken to execute the activity/task. In smart work we take less time to perform same activity. But ignorance of hard worker may be some time take you in trouble also like so I give real interesting example of cricket rahul dravid waS hard worker while he play all overs the team run rate just near between 5-6, while we take now as virat kohli he play all overs the team run rate 7-8. But sometimes smart work with risk always but hard work take time but less risky. So its depend which type of task you gonna perform if there is chance of risk than choose smart work if no single mistake then choose hard work.

Hard Work leads to less productivity (total output/total input).

Smart work leads to more more productivity.

Hard work and Smart work are nearly the same. The difference is that the way on which you work on it. When a complicated work is assigned and you solve it in a manner using the basic rules in a large amount of time its called Hard work whereas when the same complicated work is done by using some tricks in less time it is called smart work.

In my view both that is hard work and smartwork are both appreciated in their own way. If you are smart and you do nothing then your smartness is waste and if you're doing hard work and slog like a donkey then your hard work is waste. I would also like to add a point hard work requires more time and smart work takes less time to do the same work so here smartwork is more preferred as it is time saving. :).

Whenever we have a new thing to learn then we have to become a hard-worker to understand the thing and by the time we will be comfortable with it. And from that experience we can do the same thing smartly.

If we want to become a smart worker, first we have to do hard work then we will automatically become smart worker. How can a man become a smart worker with doing hard work? so, hard work leads us to the smart work.

Hard work : working physically to get a solution.

Smart working : working by our knowledge and applying innovative ideas to get a solution.

Eg : I have learnt from my real life itself, during my schooling days I will take minimum 20 min to study a simple question, I raised question to myself why I am taking that much of time to study, after that I realized I am not studying by understanding the concepts I am memorising physically, after that I changed the way I am studying by understanding the concepts thoroughly, then it tooks only maximum 5 min to study.

Hard Work: more physical work and only focuses on finishing the work.
Smart Work: more logical thinking and focuses on doing job more efficiently and in less time.

For instance - IF you want to replace the word "I" with "WE". Then.

Hard Work: Go line by line and replace one by one.
Smart work: Use Replace Application and replace the words at once. :).

One person attending for the interview. The interview panel is on the 5th floor. He is already late and he has only 3 minutes to present at panel. So in the hurry he takes steps to get there. But if he thinks about elevator he can go within 1 minute. First one represents hard work. And the second one represents smart work. One need both of these depending on the situation if there is no alternate he must go with his hard work.

Early days we were writing letters to pass the message. It will take time to deliver the letter to the respective person. Several people involve in delivering the letter to the destination address. This process represents hard work.

Present days millions of people using email communication to send their message. This represent smart work.

Let me explain it by telling a story.

Two brother have equal land for farming. They have two option, cultivate paddy and planting tree. The elder brother think that if I will plant tree it will grow after 5 years, my family couldn't survive till 5 years if I will stop cultivate paddy. So he decided not to planting tree. All the day he work hard to cultivate paddy to feed his family.

Younger brother think I will cultivate paddy at the same time I will planting the trees in the boundary of my farming land. So he able to survive till 5 year and after 5 year he sell trees and get money and able to buy new land for farming. He got the smart way.

Hard Work is something to be done or execute in pressure. Rather work in cool decent attitude with good interactive skills can be referred to a work to be smart enough.

Hard work is like a corrosive machine that can ensure you output, but after a deep process while smart work is like a well oiled machine, giving better output and less process consumption.

"It's like always living one step ahead. ".

Both are important. We can differentiate but shouldn't compare. Hard work is like the milk which''every one drinks''. Smart work is like the milk with tea or coffee powder which ''every one loves to drink''. So finally smart work is a real flavor to one's hard work.

Hard work means you will give physical and mental stress to yourself for completion of work.

On the other hand smart work means you just to apply your knowledge in particular direction to complete your task.

Hard work means working physically.
Smart work means working by our knowledge and innovative ideas.

Example:

If you did not attend your previous lecture by some reason then.

Hard Work: copying the notes from others book. In your own handwriting and study.

Time: 1+1=2.

Smart work: Take the xerox and study.

Time: 0+1=1.

Both are related couldn't described each.

Smart work is comes from hard work. By perform hard work, will gives us a knowledge to perform smart work as smart work is a shortcut of hard work.

Experience it's gained from hard work then smart work as a result.

Hard work is the traditional method of doing work which takes more resources and time and produce less efficient result whereas smart work is that which demands less but produce more. In other words smart work need smart brain to work on who can utilise one's mind in logistic way while hard work demands more effort and lesser mind.
