According to me, hard work and smart work are both interlinked with each other. Rather, I can say both are dependent on each other. Smart work will only be done when we have done Hard work in the past. So Hard work is basically a devotion while smart work is an application.

The main difference is that in hard work we start putting in efforts without really thinking a course for our action while smart work is thinking about the course of our action and then working hard. So both involve hard work but smart work involves a much more direct approach where you concentrate your hard work directly to achieve your goal.

According to me, hard work means stressing, working effectively hard to complete a particular task on/ in time.

While on the other hand smart work means extracting the task in an indirect way rather than working hard.

Example- consider two students A and B.

A study day and night. But B studies only important questions. Both A and B passes the examination. A denotes hard work.

B denotes smart work.

Hard work gives you experience and is nothing but increase your stress.

Smart work comes with experience and is simple way to achieve your motto.

I will say one real time example if you are going to the top floor through steps is hard work and you are going to top floor through lift is smart work.

Smart work is which you do a more easy manner with less span of time. Whereas hard work is which you do the work with more steps and more time. But, both play a crucial role for success.

According to me, in smart work, you can do an assigned work before the deadline and in smart work, you can complete the work within the time and everything is there is planned and in hard work you are just starting your work without planning anything. That's all from my side thank you for reading.

Hard work and Smart work both are work type which is unique in nature the place you have to work hard you should the place you should work smart you should be one should know where you should walk where you should run where you should catch a vehicle. Military training smart work but war is hard work. A little bit of experience and situation differently.

Hard work is when a person does work by using an easy methodology. It is when a person does the work for the first time and tries to complete it in a simple manner.

Smart work is when a person tries to complete the work by following the shortcut methods. After gaining some knowledge and experiences if a person does the work in an effective and efficient manner then the work is said to be smartly done.

Hard work is something which takes more physical effort and also you not sure that the work will go right or wrong. But on the other hand smart work is work which needs less energy, and the output we get is more fruity. Smart work is the wholesome presence of mind at the place.

I'll make sure that I will do both the things in the right places.

According to me both hard work and smart work should be done.

We know that hard work is the key to success.

So we should do hard work smartly means both hard work and smart work should be done to achieve success.

I think the difference is,

When the person is new to the work. He doesn't know the easy methodology to get the work done so he works hard. As time flies away he gets some experience to do that job and he finds the shortcut to the same work. That is Smart work.

I think hard work is the mother of Smart work.

My point of view both hard work and smart work are the keys to success.

# hard work = gives experience to the work.

And it is very hard to implement it can be done only by patience.
It takes more time.

# smart work = it can be done by intelligence. It takes less time to complete.

Hard work means doing the complete work full fledgedly within the assigned time or deadline but when it comes to smart work completing the work full fledgedly before assigned time.

Smart work is much better than hard work because it saves lots of time. And the remaining time can be used to complete another work.

Hard work is put all our efforts into that. It gives us more confidence to do all the work.

Smart work is to work and but less gain of knowledge.
