he toughest challenge is convincing these people here that my answer is a good one so that I get some points. You can’t convince people who are keen in pointing out mistakes alone.

15. What is the difference between hard work and smart work?

Hard work is what every breadwinner does today, including a rickshaw puller or a daily wager. Smart work is what the educated masses like us are supposed to do, and some of us are actually doing it, like my father. A well-balanced combination of both hard work and smart work is the secret formula to success. Most of the times, in the corporate world, I feel a combination of both is needed to attain excellence.”
