Success at managing work involves working smart, not working hard. Many people get put off by this assertion, associating smart work with slyness and cunning, and hard work with honesty. The truth could not be farther than this. Smart work is all about being adept at leveraging time and other resources with less effort, but with sharper insight and planning. When employees and managers work smart; they save the organization enormous amounts of time, because they accomplish the same output with less resources and time than consumed by hard work.
When people work hard, they will not be able to finish their tasks on time. This builds up pressure to carry out the next tasks, and affects the whole chain of activities. Smart work, on the other hand, helps them do the same work with lesser strain and pressure. So, isn’t smart work the hallmark of a smart employee? Organizations want employees who make optimal use of resources and finish tasks in lesser time.
Smart work requires smartness. One needs to be thinking on one’s feet all the time to devise innovative and time and resource saving ways of carrying out a work. How does one do this? Smart time and management doesn’t have to be innate. It can be acquired through proper learning and training.

Not knowing how to manage time leaves us exhausted for the next task, because we end up expending our stamina on one task. Over time, people tend to dread routine tasks, as a result of which their efficiency levels drop. All this is the result of putting too much effort on something that needed to be done in lesser time. This can only be achieved when one knows how to work smart in completing tasks within set timeframes.
