Hard work or Smart work - Which is important?

Work is important to do as it takes us to the next level of success. The most important question you should ask at this place is what kind of work will take you to that level: is it hard work or smart work.

For

- Smart work is really the need of the hour.
- Smart work saves lots of time and allows you to be more organized.
- Through smart work your goals can be reached faster.
- Doing smart work allows you to save time for other things which you might not get by doing hard work like, exercise, spending time with family etc.
- Smart work brings lots of recognition from the society and allows you to grow more in the industry you are in.

Against

- Hard work takes lots of time just to make things correct.
- It is totally time consuming and exhausting experience, as after doing lots of work you left out with less energy to do anything else.
- Hard work doesn't allow you to fully use your brain and it pushes you for more physical work.
- In terms of determination and persistence hard work is really important but not lot can be achieved.
- Working hard is not enough as it might not bring the best result of a problem or a situation.

I would like to conclude in the end that smart work is really important as it saves time and allows you to reach your goals faster than that of a hard work.

  • I have a definition for both hardworking and smart work, hardworking means doing the work without applying your ideas and knowledge , smart working means doing the work with the a lot of creative ideas , as I know both are very important without hardworking you cannot achieve success as well as without smarkwork hardwork cannot be existed , there is a proverb in English " hardwork pays always " hardworking never fail , in this generation we need a lot of hardworking and smart work without these two you will have to face a lot of problems in future

  • according to my opinion smart work with complete attention is more important than the hardwork . first of all i would like to clear your doubt related to hardwork is that we think that hardwork is some thing which is done by labour ,so those who think that they are wrong hard work is a thing which needs more time and more attention and more labour.but if we discuss the smarwork is the type of work which can done easily by laptop and mobile phone etc.we all are living in the modern aura .thats why we have to adopt the tecnology and prefer the smart work otherwise the society will thruogh us . thank you

  • ok we all prefer smart work no doubt its easier,less time consuming and requires a less amount of energy,but i thing we need to have a hold on both types.smart work means we need to have a better approach but in most of the cases you need to do hard work to be smart, suppose i want to learn playing flute then yes i can use internet and try to be smart online learner but in the end the practice i am doing is under hardwork that is going to make me a better player not my strategy. also i would like to add when we are saying hard work we are imagining that we have to work like a farmer but dear friends sachin tendulakar also did hard work and so did ussain bolt. so hard work with smartness is the key to success.

  • Smart work is Important. Because All We Need is to prove Ourself in short time and It will express our Uniqueness.
  • RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? -Deepak Kumar (03/01/16)
  • If really have to choose between Smart work and Hard work, I would be analytical about the procedure in which both the kinds of work are performed.
    Having perform a particular in a certain manner one can always analyse the procedure he had followed to achieve the desire result to find the alternative solution to the same work which could save time and increase productivity.
    Yes at the very beginning phase of any project when one conceive an idea for the project development,one has to work very hard on each and every aspect of the Idea before design phase begins and once the product has been developed we can find better way to do it in comparison of the earlier one. The hard work forms the very basis of any procedure which can be acted upon later smarty.
    To sum up Hard work is takes a little edge over smart work when a completely new task is taken in hand.

  • Without hard work we can't gain thorough knowledge about anything. Also, if we want to achieve our goal, then we should have discipline, dedication and determination which come through hard work. But to do anything in well managed and planned way, we should do smart work. So, hard work along with smart work is the way to success.
  • RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? -satish (02/10/16)
  • According to my point of view I feel that smart work is more important then hard work because now a days we all are avoiding the time consuming like we are finding the daily updates of the news on our mobile itself within a few second.not to wait for the newspaper to get the news of yesterday.Also some examples like netbanking,online ticket ings,online news etc...

  • I think that good knowledge made smart personalities nd help them to do work smart but better knowledge came from hard work at primary stages. so work 1st hard then smart.
  • Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? -Michael (01/28/16)
  • Both are equally important Why because getting up early in the morning at 6 and get ready for work is Hard work and reaching office and doing the job with good time management is Smart work. So according to me and i hope others will also agree on we need Work Hard Smartly :)
  • RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? -praveen (12/25/15)
  • Smart or hard work depends on definition for both.
    For me smart work means, working on specific tasks continuously in achieving the targets even with many obstacles in a focused manner & with self motivation & a plan, which will be completed as per expectation.
    For me hard work means, working on specific tasks continuously in achieving the targets even with or without obstacles in a non-focused manner , with less or no motivation & plan, which eventually going to end up with slight positive or negative trend.
    I believe & practice smart work. Smart work is important

  • Smart work will give you immediate success, but hard work will give success for sure. With Smart work one can achieve goal but hard work will always lead to success.
    In this world both hard work & smart work are important.

  • Smart Work Is More Important In Today's World.EveryBody In This World Trying To Reach Their Goals In Short Amount Of Period.I Would Like To Relate This With A Short Incidence Which Took Place With The Former U.S. President Abrahim Lincoln.When Someone Asked from a normal man If He Was Given 8 hours To Cut a Tree With A knife what would he do.He Replied i would simply cut a tree and finish my task as early as possible.And when the same question was asked from Licoln he replied i would consume some time for shapening the knife then i would cut the tree in short amount of time.So SmartWork is more imp in life

  • As they say,To live it up in today's competitive world you need to be Street Smart.Instead of doing hours n hours of handwork it would be lucrative to carry out smart work in just few hours.Doing the right thing at the right time matters more than doing futile things all the time.You need to plan up efficient n optimal strategies for future where you could utilize your much precious saved time in other activities.Success demands ingenuity with a little persistent hard work.Not the usual donkey work will lead you to something bizarre denouement.

  • Put your Hard effort / work initially and continue to work smartly. It is just like a flights take off (Hard work) and fly fast over the air with minimal use of fuel (Smart work). Both are very important and unavoidable to lead a successful life.

    single sentence. I.e. Smart work is the byproduct of HARDWORK.

  • RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? -gowri sankar (09/13/15)
  • i dont think so whish is important? whether its hardwork or smartwork.But nowadays in this technology based world time is more important than everything.so to finish work in time smartwork is more important.But to do smart work, our background must be filled with good direction which leads us to reach our goal.we should do hard work to be smart.Thus i finish my talk by saying that both hardwork and smartwork are the two eyes of us.Without one we can live our life but we cant fullfill our life.

  • In between smart work and hard work u may first do hard work because before hard work you can't work smartly. you can do work smartly u should first know about it .it is also true that smart work reduces lot of time and also money .so I conclude that both are important.
