As I think about the year ahead, I wonder if you have published articles about goal setting specifically for people working in the payments industry. I've left college because I want to get more work experience before I settle on a major. I've done academic goal setting but none for anything job related.

In "Work SMARTER, not harder," published in this issue of The Green Sheet, Natasa Cvijanovic, co-founder and CEO of Tesla Payments, shared an acronym that encapsulates the qualities effective goals should have. You might already be familiar with it: SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic or Relevant, and Timely). Civjanovic expanded the acronym to SMARTER (adding Evaluation and Revision) for even greater success.
