Actually it was because Hera was jealous because Zeus had cheated on her and the lady gave birth to Hercules. So Hera made Hercules go mad and kill his family. After he did this he was saddened so he prayed to Apollo and he told Hercules to complete the 12 labors to make up for his crime.

He worked really hard...

This is somewhat of a silly question unless you really meant to ask "What did Heracles do to complete each of the 12 labors?".
