I would like to have some suggestion on how to work smart not hard. Do you ever think that you are actually work hard whereas we can actually work smart and get the job done much faster and with better results.

Better to work smart and work hard not only choose one. Because what is important of being smart if you can't follows with hard work...?

working smart doesnt go well all the time so just trust hard work than focusing on working smartly.

I agree with working smart rather than hard. You can work hard and smart at the same time, and you can work hard and get nowhere fast. One of my jobs is being a production manager. I had my job running very smoothly until my boss came in and changed it. Then no one knew what they were supposed to be doing... there were a few articles (this is a writing company) that were duplicates because the writers were walking all over each other. I knew this would happen and when it did my boss didn't like me reminding him about it. I decided to not worry about it, because it is him having to pay these people for their work. For me, working smart is becoming my boss's right hand and showing him that he can't run the show without me. He asks me what we should do after he screws up... so now he does ask me more what I think should be done. It makes my job easier and helps things to flow easier to the subcontrators.
