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.

Before doing work smartly. You need to be a hard task master. Because if you don't do any any hard work then you are unable to get a clear picture of your future goal. After getting your future goal then you can do work smartly by using tricks.

Comments:

Dustu : No need to tell about like this. Because this is, not the essential point. They are asking about the difference between hard and smart work. So give to the point answer only.

There is a lot of ways to complete a work but a hard worker doesn't choose the easy track he blindly put his all efforts that consumes a lot of energy and time. A smart worker applies his mind and chooses that track that consumes less energy and time.

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.

Smart work and hard work go hand in hand.

Smart work comes inside hard work. If you were first a hard worker then only you can be a smart worker. If only hard work was enough then the rickshaw person would be the most successful and richest. For smart work you need to do hard work first.

For me, Hard work is to give your more than 100% to work and gain lot of experience from it.

And smart work is about implementing your skills that you have gained from your hard work in a right manner to achieve goals in a short time. For me, both are important and dependable on each other.

Arpan Ghosh said: (Oct 2, 2018)  
In my opnion. Hard work means to do a work with more effort with out using your ideas.

But smart work means to use you brain to do this work in a limited time with accuracy.

Suppose there was two boy. Given them a task to oppen the locked door.

One of them starting to push the door with his full effort, with out looking any whare.

And the other one looking all at first and put the key from the table and unlock the door.

They both oppen the door. But the 1st boy use his most effort but he culd not oppen the door in a right way, and the other one using his brain, and clamness and oppen the door currently.

This is the difference between the smart work and the hard work.

Hard work means pushing yourself towards your success. & if you want to succeed in your life you have to do hard work like get early, sleep early, avoid bad thinks, focus on only studies ya whatever if you are interested in play then only focus on players do practice every day and give 100% efforts. This is hard work.

Smart work means pulling success towards us (to execute success).

But both are important because without hard work we cannot do any smart work.

So, in my opinion, both are important to us.

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 delivering on time with max. Effort but the smart work delivering on time with less effort. Hard work is a part of smart work. Smart work acquired skill from hard work. Hard work gives experience but smart work came from experience. Hard work consume more time and physical strength but smart work consume physical and mental strength with lesser time. I feel both are need to attain success.
