Smart is an adjective.

Thomas Edison said, “Success is due to 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration”. We now hear, “Work smarter. Not harder.”

Smart Card

  • For a while, I worked for a Defense Contractor. I was assigned to DMDC (Defense Manpower Data Center).
  • Every employee and contractor is given a Smart Card, which has a processor and memory to hold Biometrics (e.g. fingerprint), Photo ID, and Cryptographic Keys.
  • One has to use a Smart Card to (a) enter specified areas of the building (b) logging on to a computer system. It was not cheap at that time, and there were limitations in the resources.

Smart devices are now ubiquitous.

SMART is an acronym for setting Objectives.
S => Specific
M => Measurable
A => Achievable
R => Realistic
T => Time-bounded

SMARTER is a lesser used acronym. It extends SMART.
