Hard work is when you give all the efforts and energy to do work and smart work is when you complete your work without giving much effort and energy.
Sometimes , smart work is more helpful than hard work, because it saves time .

Experience comes from hard work and smart work comes from experiences. Hardwork beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.

Hard work and Smart work both are same and key for success.

So come to the difference between hard work and smart work. I think hard work gives experience and smart work comes from experience.

Right now I felt there is no any one parameter of success but on the other side.

Both are the keys to success to achieve of own goal as per my view both are equally important to each other and play vital roles in them & hard work gives us experience and smart work comes from experience as well.

In my opinion, hard work is when an employee invests all his time and energy to complete one particular work and on the other hand, smart work is when an employee completes his work without much effort and energy.

Hard work and Smart work is the main different "Strategies" and strategies must be based upon "Reality".

And according to me, both Hard work and Smart work give the best result as you want. But without Hard work, Smart work is not possible because hard work gives you experience and smart work comes with experience.

The success formula =hard work +smart work.

These are like the two sides of one coin. We have to balance both. Because hard work gives you experience and using that experience we can do smart work. Hard work will give you success but it will take some time. But in smart we will not sure that it will give us success.

For example; if we study the entire syllabus for the exam it takes time but it should not harm us. On the other hand, if we study only important questions there will be a chance of failure.
