Hard Work Vs. Smart Work

There is smart TV, smart phone, smart card. Everyone is getting smarter. So why not the way we work!

Here are some points of distinctions between Hard-work and Smart-work :

1.  Hard work involves monotonous long-cut ways for doing things;
                       Smart work uses innovative shortcuts to get things done.

2.  Hard work looks at different things in same ways;
                       Smart work looks at same things in different ways.

3.  Hard work demands meticulous planning and control;
                       Smart work is real time decision making strait from the gut.

4.  Hard worker says, “I believe in hard work. There are no shortcuts to success.”
                        Smart worker says, “I believe in myself. I want result and my ways are flexible.”

5.  Hard work is thinking along with (and even after) doing;
                         Smart work is thinking through the act before it is done. But not later.

6.  Hard worker likes company of those who ‘talk’ about work;
                         Smart worker does not talk about work. Therefore everyone around is equal.

7.  Hard work is closed mind with open door.
                          Smart work is open mind with closed door.

8.  Hard worker is like the tiger in the zoo who keeps attempting to break the cage;

                          Smart worker is like Lion who knows his limitations. He adapts himself to the reality.
9.  He who has never worked hard, never enjoys fruits of smartness;
                          But he who has never accepted smartness, ends up working very hard. 
There is no 10th point. Enough of Hard Work!
