hardwork to me is interpreting everything step by step as it is told to you with out being smart working is gathering all info of tasks needed to be done and using your creative mind to process an approach to have the job done at a shorter time.

the difference is nothing but the effort which we put in to accomplish the task. The abscense of physical effort is the main advantage of doing a smart work. Also the amount of work which we do by smart work is always way ahead than doing hark work...

2.Smart work is the work which is finished on time with less resources used but with a lot of creative thinking behind. It includes the love towards a job

Hard Work never fails. The more harder u work the more luck u get. Requires lot of physical activity

Smart Work sometimes fails. Requires lot of mental activity.

But in another case the more harder u work the more smart one can become.

In hardworking, the person have the capacity work hard even if he is not capable for it. At this time he is ready to work to achieve his target with inadequate knowledge. But in smartworking, person apply his own skill which can help the organization to progress & feel the person unique for his abilities. These are my thoughts....

in my opinion hard is when we apply our full efforts and our full energy in our work whereas when we use our energy and when we apply our efforts on the right time on the right place is known as smart work. in smart work we wait for the right time to use our efforts in the right way but in hard work we dont think this... we think that every time is right.

take an example..using small buckets to harvest rain water is HARD WORK,as it comprises more effort and time..
on the other hand using large reservoir to preserve water is SMART WORK,as same task is being done with better idea and effort..
but SMART WORK IS NOT SUBSTITUTE OF HARD WORK..they go hand in hand..
