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.

Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Vishwajeet Thite (08-22-2013)
We are discussing about whether hard work is good or smart work. I will prefer smart work but as a part of discussion we will have a look at both the aspects.

• Hard work is the building block for the smart work.
• To do smart work one should have sound knowledge of the subject. This knowledge can be achieved only through hard work.
• I believe that hard work is always productive – perhaps not in a short run. Rewards come to you when you are not looking for them continuously. When you step out to work with a passion to do your best, you will bring out the best in the others as well! That itself is a great reward.

• In these days, you hear a lot of talk about working smart. People often tell you, “You don’t get anywhere by sheer hard work. Look at the people working at construction sites. They are working very hard, but are they getting anywhere in life? If you want to achieve success, you need to work smart.” Such comments leave most of us in a confusion. What happened to the sayings like, “Work hard and the success will be yours. ”

• Is it important to work hard or not?
• Now we will have a look at the smart work.
• It is a fact that today nobody has much time to act or to create his or her impression.
• Actually hard work and smart go hand in hand for you to be successful. Smart work is about making right strategy.
• Smart work always saves your time which is an important aspect. Through smart work you can achieve your goals faster.
• Hard work doesn’t need mental ability. Conversely a smart worker uses his brain to make the work easier.
• As a conclusion I can say that smart work is very important in today’s fast paced life. But to achieve that stage one should do hard work in the background.

HARD WORK
You cant just do smart work everytime and be a proficient in something.
Before working particularly on anything you should be well equipped with the knowledge you need to tackle the problem that doesnt come from smart work. Once you are well equipped then you can use the smartest way of finishing the particular work. Be it programmers,be it cricketers they all work hard to acquire the skillness which over the time contribute to their smartest works!!
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Sunia Mukherjee (11-21-2014)
Rakshi's comments summarized it all. The first one written by Rajani Sharma only talked about the positive points of smart work. She did not touch the topic of Hard work at all- How it can be beneficial.

Vishwajeet Thite came across as a matured writer who has summed up the topic very beautifully.
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? padmavathi (11-24-2014)
i think both are two sides of same coin. in today's contemporary world, smart work is always preferred over hard work but for all we know, there might be someone out there smarter than us, thus to differentiate one need to incorporate smart work in lieu with hard work
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Gautam kumar (11-25-2014)
We can't achieve our ambition by choosing either hard work or smart work. To be our level best, we should accept both type of legerdemain. One who wants to do smart work, would have to do hard work to be smart. Hence hard work is more preferable than that of smart work. I know properly that hard work is time taking and cause of harassment but fact is fact nd there is no shortcut to be succeed without hard working. Whenever we would reach at a stage there would be different idea to do work.Now we would capable to do smart work.

I also supports vishwajeet and feels that both smart work and hard work is needed . In science work is nothing but force and displacement . so even to do smart work for good impression we will automatically do hard work ....
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Himansu (03-30-2015)
Both hard work & smart work takes us to the next level of success.one should
do smart work ,when he has deep knowledge on this work so that he can think new ideas or ways to do the work.For getting deep knowledge one should do Hard work. Hard-work is time taking and difficult But it is true that hard work is origin of smart work.so one must do hard work today for do smart work in future.
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? SIDDHARTH (04-10-2015)
i will go with hard work.. becoz the most important thing is that,,not every person has a sharp mind or creative thinking.. not everyone has a attitude to grow fatser in this generation. most of the peoples dont even think about smart work..they are not fast enough.. but every people has strength to do some hard work if he/she want to do.. now take a example of poor workers.. they arent fast enough to do smart work,they are hard working.. and by poor worker or our farmer brothers,this country has some points to debate to other countries.
hard work is more important becoz we can acheive sucess defently by this. it is sure.
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Yash (04-15-2015)
i think both are beneficial at their own stages.. but smart work then hard work if things doesn't work with smart work.

hard work doesn't really means that we gonna make things better for our future, but smart work comes with a guarantee that once the work is done, it is done!

RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? kam (04-15-2015)

RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Rekha Negi (04-23-2015)
Work is important whether it is hard or simple.. Bt we are talking abt which one is easy & importnt.. For me smart work is most important bcoz smart work saves our tym & energy & it allow us to do more.. In other hand hard is really meant to be hard.. Hard work makes us tired wen we finish d wrk which is given to us. & it doesnt allow us to do more. It effects our body & we dnt use our mind wen we r doing it physically.. Bt smart wrk effects our mind to think more & forward.
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? rohan (04-23-2015)
I think between hard work and smart work,definately smart work is more important,but smart work can be achieved by doing hard work.the initial step of every sucessful person is hard work.after doing lot of hard work person knows the trick of doing smart work rather than hard work.so hard work is essential part of every person in intial phase.
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Sujeet (07-1-2015)
I believe both are very important for achieving our goals.
But,
There are some steps, which we have to follow,
Step 1_before doing smart work we need to be perfect in how to do hard work.
Step 2_ if u are eligible or know how to do that work so now u can do ur work as smart work
Smartness makes us fast n sharp
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Kanagala v n s yaswanth (07-2-2015)
I think both are important.but in my view smart hard work is essential for success. With out the combination of both we can't succeed... So both have equal importance.......

They say" Knowledge is that which we carry in our pockets not in books" so we should act wise rather than stuffing us with huge chunks of bookish knowledge and spilling it everywhere so as to pretend to be knowledgeable.Success is measured solely by your efforts which should subsume both smartness and hardwork .If one tries to achieve hardwork solely by running foolishly d rat race to fulfill present academic criteria he would be successful but not deserving for that honourable post which he gains as he wont be able to avail his knowledge for anyone' s good.
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? jackey jain (07-23-2015)
ya its r8 smart work and hard work like as a " ek sikke k do pahlu". A person. doing smart work when he already have sufficient knowledge about that field, so without doing hard work he did not get good experience. A good example is the group discussion in which if u get a topic, without u listen this topic befre you will say only few point but u read this topic and getting knowledge from different way, u will give smart answer at that time.

I prefer smart work as because though you work hard you should think smartly and act by determining the extreme ends of your action both in a positive as well as negative way.
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Joni Rajput (08-24-2015)
As always people want to save time due to lack of time, in this case smart work always prefer but hard work is the initial point for smart work. Without hard work and knowledge I do'nt think person can do smart work. I agree smart work is more important compare to hard work because no body looks for hard work he/she just want the task within short time. But knowledge always comes by hard work If any person do this then he can easily do smart work.

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.

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.

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.

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

RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? G. PRAVEEN KUMAR (11-26-2015)
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.
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? madhavi (11-29-2015)

Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Michael (01-28-2016)
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? Akshay das bairagya (02-6-2016)
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.
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? satish (02-10-2016)
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...
RE: Hard work or Smart work - Which is important? Diwakar Shashi (03-1-2016)
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? Deepak Kumar (03-1-2016)
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.
