I heard many people said that hardworking is the most important thing to be successful, smart is not the determinant fact.
One woman I know used to tell me that she need 98% hardworking and only 2% smart to be successful like she was at the moment, she was just lucky to have that 2%, without it, people can still be successful. So what do you think about it?
Thanks in advance guys ^_^

Yeah. I'd go for hardworking. I don't really like smart people. Like my stepdad for instance. He's smart and he gets pissed off easily and I hate it! And being smart gets people jelouse too. I think. But I prefer hardworking. Even thou your not that smart. Youore still doing the best you can. XD

I think a hardworking employee is more useful. They are more likely to just do as they are told. Smart employees have questions. Of course smart employees can save you time and money by seeing something you don't. I think you would want a hard-working employee with occassional moments of insight.

If you would challenge me, then you must first stand before the Darkness. You must look into it and become it. You must fall before it and then reach out to encompass it. When it is joined to your heart, you must overcome its insidious temptation. You are ready to face me when you can betray even your own heart in service to your cause.

I think it's absolutely right. ...There are bounds that depent on intellegence... ...But you won't get anywhere without effort. ...I've known folks that really... ...really, really... didn't grasp concepts, but made it through life with success.... ...I have also seen the "intellegent" fall to their own vanity and laziness. ...I agree... ...It's all about the hard work. ...The intellegence just gives a person an edge here and there... ...After all... ...Most of the world's problems were already solved. ...And you can be successful with out curing cancer. ;)

you know if you're really smart, chances are you can become successful and not be so hardworking. I have a couple friends that can prove this. once they graduated they got jobs, "worked" hard for about a year or so, and now they have other people work for them. you can call them lazy, i know i do, but hey getting paid between $50-75k a year for doing nothing but boss other people around seems pretty successful to me >_<

Hardworking it is. I'm a hardworking type and my grades at school are not bad at all but some classmates consider themselves smart can't even have good grades as mine :\

Haha, let's just say I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed. I work hard most of the time and knowing that I put effort in it makes me proud and happy. So I may not be smart, but I do my damn best!! ^^

Lets just put it this way...no offense to you hardworking folks, but Id much rather be a lazy bastard physically and just use my intelligence to get ahead than grunt and groan and put forth lots of effort for comparitively little gain.

Intelligence all the way.

I would rather use my intelligence as well, but of course, we all may have to work hard once in our lives to pay off the bills and support ourselves.

i'll go with hardworking... it'd be nice to be lazy once in awhile, but even after awhile i'd get bored with that.

I think a person should possess them both. He should be hardworking and at the same time smart. :)
If I compare a person that is hardworking with a smart person that is lazy.... I believe that the hardworking person is better. :)

Smart and Hardworking both works. I know the perfect examples of those. This guy in my class is extremely lazy, never does any homeworks, but he became the valedictorian. o.O That's because he knows want classes to take, and he scores 100s on most of them. On the other hand, one of my friend is not really smart, but he spends a lot of time studying, and he still passed with A's. But of course, the best would be possessing both traits.

Hehe,yeah,I think we all know that hardworking is important,but I still think smart is more important too!!^_^' I think if you have 100% smart and then yeah,you'll do things easier than other ppl.^_^

Try to be cool but..... Try to be easy but..... So I still do myself !!!

Cancel

Hardworking is better... because you feel the satisfaction after you do something successfully & you feel proud of yourself. :)

Though the requisite efforts certainly are necessary, many times the "smarts" as they say also take on large roles. In the grand scheme of things, the smarts recognizes the opportunity and the path, and only thereafter does effort lead one down that path.

Merely hardworking is admirable, but not enough. It would be too easy to lose oneself amidst the flurry of details and forget the overall aim that the hardwork is striving to achieve. The smarts would provide the hardwork the necessary direction for success.

A school example: I am a very hard working person and I have an average of over 95(a+) and taht is why I often miss out on MT and trips and a weekend off-I study- A LOT. I have a poor memory and I work h.a.r.d. for my grades to be great.
My freind, Whitney, is smart,yet not at all hardworking. She passes all of her tests and even gets higher scores than me without even studying.
I feel very saddeened by the fact that I work h.a.r.d. to do the same things she does in the same time when she plays on teh computer and does better in school. I perfer, in this example at least,smart to hardworking.

Since I'm not so smart, I'll go with hardworking. I get exercise like that anyway, both mentally and physically.

To be successful you must not be smart but be wise.

For me, both are important, but hardworking is better. If you're not smart, but you're a hardworker, your tasks will be finished, but it will not be as good as if a smart-hardworking person do the same task.
But, if you're smart but not a hardworker, you can't finish your tasks well.
So, I think hardworking is better.

Hardworking is not important to me... I had never really tried hard at anything in my life. I just stick with what I can do... and I manage to live happily.
