Yes, I do believe in smart work if I’m not willing to work hard. As a writer, the only smart work I can do is to take the content from different books or websites and create articles to fill up this website. But then I have never been any good in filling the head of my readers by being disloyal to them.
I’m happier being a hard-work-writer than a smart-work-writer. After writing 500-1000 words every day, I feel satisfied with my life.
Reading and writing for the whole day is the greatest pleasure for a writer.
No matter what you do or how you do it, there will always be people that disagree with what you’re doing. You cannot convince everyone to accept you. And there will be many people who may disagree with my opinion.
Looking back over the struggles and failures, I find if a man accepts the long route and leaves finding quick-fix of his problems then it would be the smartest act of his life.
There is also a rule for working hard. Without seeing the bird clearly, you cannot hit her eye. You need to clear your vision before you release your arrow. Moreover, you also need to plan before you hit the aim. So, you can follow the motto: plan smart but work hard.
Now it would be wrong if you’re not updating yourself and changing with the time. Of course, you cannot go in the war with the same old tools and weapons. With the modern technology, it becomes easy to get success in life. But again, the technology has increased the competition which leads to work more hard.
I devote my time to working hard more on mental health than physical health. Mental work had paid me more than physical work. I also cannot avoid my physical health. My habit of walking down the streets ups and down takes care of my physical health. In addition, I plot many articles in my head while walking to a tea stall stands a few streets behind my room I had rented.

Smart work, I think, is linked with impatience. As we grow older, our experiences and failures bend us. Then we need more silence than noise, more patience than smartness, and more strength than passion.
This mini blog didn’t come from smart work or hard work. I didn’t research before writing this post. I just jot down the words precisely what surfaced in my mind. I think poetry of Mohammad Iqbal states aptly my love for writing.
Khudee ko kar buland itna
Ki har taqdeer sey pehley
Khuda bandey se Khud poochhey
Bata teree razaa kya hai
(Steal your will with such power
That at every turn of fate it be so
That God should ask of his slave,
‘Tell me, what is it that pleases you?’)
