I want to say that that it is not the Hard Work which is sufficient to crack IAS
rather Smart Work is required to crack IAS. I think most of the people who enter
in this field are sure of the thing that they can do Hard work but as far as
clearing this exam is concerned, it is their Smart work which matter.
In my opinion Hard Work is something that you will read daily 12-14 hrs. You
will read different magazines, books, News-Papers daily but sometimes you will
go deep inside in these things that you will forgot what is relevant and what's
not.This irrelevant things in his hard work suffered him a lot.Hard Work is
something doing deep study of various topics without considering the fact that
whether it is significant for your exam or not.
Smart Work is something that doing the Hard Work Smartly. Smart Decision is
choosing best out of various goods and similarly Smart Work is doing best among
various alternatives. In our study, doing of this Smart Work is of much more
importance. Actually the syllabus of our exam is so wide that we can't study it
completely so we have to make choices and our choice should be relevant, our
choice would be according to the syllabus of the UPSC. Now suppose that we have
study a lot and when the retrieval part is considered it is the Smart Work which
matters more than Hard Work.
I think Smart Work and Hard Work are not Isolative rather they are associative
and in my opinion Smart Work is nothing but doing the Hard Work according to
needs and requirements of your Goals.
Finally, It is the Hard Work which decides your success or failure but Smart
Work ensures your Success.
