    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...

    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..

    We can get success through both Hard and smart work. But we have to work for results. We have to choose the type based on the work. Hard work never fails but takes more strain. Smart work may fails if your involvement is less.

    Hard work and Smart work both are equivalent on its own place. Smart work is required where works have to be done through People, Machine and computers. Hard work is required when all of these (People, Machines, and Computers) are going to be break down.
    Smart work may be finish within time frame but hard work always shows independency and expertise to be work done.
