Don't Set Resolutions. Set Personal OKRs.
If you've read any of my past blog posts, you've probably come across the acronym OKR. It stands for Objective and Key Results. First developed by managing-legend Andy Grove at Intel, the goal-setting approach was massively popularized by John Doerr and Google. Want to learn more about OKRs?

John Doerr - Investor
“The objective is what I want to have accomplished. The key results are how I’m going to get it done. The objectives are typically longer lived. They’re bold and aspirational. The key results are aggressive, but always measurable, time-bound, and limited in number.”

What mindset is

A mindset is a set of assumptions, methods, or notations that is so established that it creates a powerful incentive within you to continue to adopt or accept prior behaviours, choices, or tools.

Personal & Individual OKRs (Objectives and Key Results)

Personal OKRs are for your personal life, individual OKRs are for performance tracking at work.

Why Use Personal OKRs?

We all want things from life, but life wants things from us too.
  • How do you accomplish the things that are important to you, but aren’t urgent? 
  • How do you move forward when life is screaming at you to focus on now?

From Goal setting to Goal achieving.

  • Focus on Won’t Get Done. OKRs for things you’re worried you’re NOT going to do, not for tracking things you will.
