If the task gets completed simply by just following methods then it will be hard work, while the same task gets completed in few time by using few of tricks and applying fewer efforts then it will be known as smart work, actually, hard work gives experience if you are on the first time and smart work comes via experience if you are dealing with the same task.

Hello, I can differentiate between hard work and smart work since we know that for any work or objectives there are various options/paths are available there but here hard-working people can choose any path and gone. But smart work first sees what's the ultimate aim and for that he decided that path which takes the shortest time, arrange works in various parts according to priority level.

Basically, Hard work means doing something without having any priorities or goals in work.

In Smart work, we separate the task as a priority level and start doing it with shortcuts.

The difference between hard work and smart work is based on how I approach my task. Hard work would mean spending long hours to complete my work without any shortcuts. Smart work would be aiming for the same results but with planning and prioritization of tasks.

Hard work means doing things for a long time without any breaks and shortcuts while smart work means doing things using logics and shortcuts.

Also, I think SMART WORK come from HARD WORK.

So, if we will work hard, we will understand all the things and can do the work smartly.

Sir in my opinion there's a very interesting relationship between hard work and smart work.

From hard work you'll get experiences, where as smart work comes from these experiences. So for an individual both smart work and hard work are very important. At the same time, I also learned another thing from my life, that sometimes hard work could be a pretty alternative of smart work but there's no such replacement of hard work exists. Thank you.

Hard work is related to your physical strength. It doesn't mean you don't have knowledge about a particular task. It means you have knowledge but fewer skills. Doing the same job/task, again and again, you meet with fault and learn from it and this gives you experience and experience called smart work.

Thank you.

Both are necessary to achieve success. If a work complete with planing. Then we can say that this way is a smart working way.

If we try to solve a problem without planing but the result came 100%. This way is hard-working way.

Hard work shows that the person is trying hard to achieve a particular goal or aim and smart work is nothing more than achieving the goal but in an efficient way. At last, the most important thing to be taken care is that only a hard-working person can lead to smart work as only he will know the most efficient way to achieve the goal.
