Smart work comes after hard work.

Hard work related with the power and smart work related with the brain.

According to my point of view, Hard work is always a success because a person getting more & more knowledge and skill to fulfil our own growth.

Smart work is also good way for success in a short time but the drawback is when we do smart work we don't have perfect knowledge in a particular topic.

Hard work is work done under pressure to succeed at any cost as soon as possible. There is no deadline for completion of work. Whereas smart work is work done in relaxed methodical manner with high optimism to complete within the stipulated deadline.

Smart work begets efficiency and experience. Hard work begets smart work, efficiency and experience.

My view is that, If we apply only physical power to achieve our goal can say hard work but it we apply both physical and mental.

Power to achieve a goal can say smart work.

Smart work saves a lot of time rather than hard work.

Hard work is that you can do any work with more efforts and effectively.

Smart work is that you do any work with lesser efforts.

But I support hard work because if you can do more efforts in any work then you gain more and more knowledge and I think smart work comes from hard work.

Thank you.

I think hard work is the basic stage of smart work. When a fresher join in any company they start their work as a hard worker but after a certain amount of time when they gain their knowledge then they work smartly or as a smart worker.

A person who thinks before work & work was done shortly by a strategy that is smart work.
A person who does use both methods that is genius.

Hard work is that when we do something at a stretch without any thought,

And as far as smart work is concerned, smart work is that when we do anything with full confidence, from our heart and to be full concentration that called.

Smart work, in sum up we will have to get that whatever we think, we become the same,

So whatever you do, the same you will get.

I believe, Smart work is experience part of Hard work. Eg. If you go for travel to unknown place, you will find it hard at first to locate all the ways and places there, however once It is known, then it becomes easy and you can guide others like your friends etc. And then for you it became smart work and at first it was Hard work!

In my view, we can find the other ways too when you are doing hard work to finish the given job. But when you finish the job by your smartness you can't find the struggle you have to go through while doing that job and the other possible ways too. So the hard work only gives you some extraordinary experiences that you really need for upgrading your skills. Thank you.

Hardwork is the work which is doing with physically but not any mentaly force.

Smart work is work which is doing with less work but more brainly. Smart work is the time saving work then the hard work. And smartwork's accuracy is so good to the hardwork.

Hard work and smart work are slightly related because Without putting hard work, efforts we are unable to get a smart way to work better. Soo I think hard work is more important to get experience then it provides a way to work in a smart way.

Hard work means putting all your efforts, mainly physical efforts, to complete a work.

Smart Work means adding some mental efforts, which will reduce your physical efforts as well as the time taken to complete the work. Smart work increases the efficiency, and reduces the resources used for the completion of the work, thereby proving to be a double profit.

Only a hard-worker can be a smart worker.
