Working Smart vs Working Hard.


Smart workers know what they want and they fight for it with much more than just hard work. They must have a strategy.

Hard workers have a vague idea of what they want and consequently don’t take the best decisions or they simply hope that hard work will simply pay off. Well, sometimes it does, but many times it doesn’t.

The difference between hard work and smart work is based on how one approaches his or her given tasks.

Hard work would mean spending long hours to complete the task without any shortcuts.

Smart work would be aiming for the same results, but with planning and prioritization of tasks.

According to the traditional American dream, hard work is the key to success. But — and that’s a big but… hard work isn’t the only key to success.

Hard work is necessary for success for sure, but it’s not sufficient in itself.

And no, the other key isn’t “daddy’s money” or “lucky breaks.” The other key is to work smart.

Hard Work, also, helps a person to complete a task successfully, but time consumption will be more and there is no assurance if the task can be completed with less resources.

Smart Work lets you understand the time consumed even before performing the task.

Finally, Hard work is definitely more important, because it is only through hard work that we can achieve the goals of our life.

Smart work, on the other hand, often leads to shortcuts and procrastination.

To achieve anything in life, one has to commit to continuous hard work, which will in the end lead one to the summit of achievement.
