How to set your Personal OKRs and stick to them
For the last few years, I've been fascinated by habit forming, personal development, and the process of "self actualisation" - unlocking the best possible version of yourself. I'm not interested in the sort of "self-help" personal development that focuses on building confidence and "getting what you want in life" - I'm much more interested in systems and frameworks that help people improve themselves over time and achieve clear measurable goals.

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.

  • First, Close Out the Last Quarter with Learning. Take the last week of the quarter to grade last quarter’s OKR set. Reflection is the key to accelerated learning.
  • Will you Explore or Exploit Next Quarter?How much time should you spend exploring new possibilities, and how much exploiting ones you have proven work?
  • Focus on Won’t Get Done. OKRs for things you’re worried you’re NOT going to do, not for tracking things you will.

Locke and Latham’s 5 Principles of Goal-Setting

  1. Clarity: clear goals help with understanding the task at hand.
  2. Challenge: the goal should be challenging enough to prove motivating, but not impossible to achieve. 
  3. Commitment: involve your team in the goal-setting process.
  4. Feedback: measure your progress and seek advice.
  5. Task complexity: be careful in adding too much complexity to your goals as it can impact morale, productivity, and motivation.

Objectives & Key Results (OKRs) framework for goal setting

  • Objectives – This is what you hope to accomplish. Objectives usually take the form of broad goals that are not measurable (that’s what the Key Results section is for).
  • Key Results – Based on objectives, the key results are almost always defined with a specific number.

The Objective is qualitative, and the KR’s (most often three) are quantitative.

Objectives

Your objective defined in a single sentence should be:

  • Qualitative and inspirational. The objective is designed to get people jumping out of bed in the morning with excitement.
  • Time-bound. You want it to be a clear sprint toward a goal, doable in a month or a quarter.
  • Actionable by the team independently. Your Objective has to be truly yours, and you can’t have the excuse of “marketing didn’t market it.”

Key Results

Key results take all that inspirational language and quantifies it.

You create them by asking a simple question “how would we know if we met our objective?”
