Smart work vs Hard work


Smart work :-

  • Advantages of Smart work :-

    • Smart work is intellectual. Hence it improves our innovative and creative thinking skills.
    • Smart work improves productivity.
    • It teaches time management skills.
    • Because of smart work, we now have more free time. For example, modern transport systems reduced effort and time in moving to another place.
    • Smart work forces us to concentrate on work fully, because it demands mental presence too.
  • Disadvantages of Smart work :-

    • Smart work may make us lazy, as we get used to do less work and get more output.
    • Mere smart work may not yield results. “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard”. Hence we cannot completely rely on smart work.
    • To work smartly, at first we need knowledge about the work, which comes only with hard work and experience.
    • We cannot teach hard work to smart working persons, if they are not willing to work hard.

Hard work :-

  • Advantages of Hard work :-

    • Through hard work, we gain knowledge and experience. This will help us to do smart work, that means we can then analyse shortcuts to do the same amount of work.
    • Hard work teaches us patience and discipline.
    • The result of hard work will be more appealing to us, because we put a lot of effort in achieving it.
    • Everyone will choose hard working persons to work under them.
    • We can teach smart work to hard working people and we can be sure about the improved productivity, because they work hard.
  • Disadvantages of Hard work :-

    • Hard work may become boring and monotonous.
    • It consumes a lot of time and effort.

Conclusion :-

We need work hard as well as smart to achieve success in our lives. Only one of the both will not be sufficient in this modern world.

  1. According to me hard work is the key of success first I have to gain my knowledge , if I don’t have any experience and I use smart technic I will not be able to manage. If I am a hard working person I have knowledge of this work and then I use smart technic , I will get more productivity, good output.But in the modern world we have to get knowledge of smart technology, if I think only smart work I can get success it is not possible , for time being I can get success but for long I have to work hard .So hard work and smart work both are essential to get success.

  2. Hard work should be our 1st preference because through hard work only we can go for smart work. As in with hard work we gain knowledge experience…which is the basic for smart work.. Thereafter by doing smart work we can enhance our creativity that furthur adds to our both are mutually dependent

  3. Im going with hard work because of hard work we can achive anything, with hard work may be we will take some extra time but when we are going with hard work absolutely we will achive success in our work…
    I’m not completely against smart work because when we are working smartly, we may or may not achieve our goals,but if we put hard work and smart work, then the possibility of achieving the goals will be increased. We can save our time when we are working in both ways. But when we go with hard work absolutly, you will achieve your goal and when we go with smart work, u may or may not achieve success.
