Setting work goals

  • Set goals at regular intervals and give yourself enough time.
  • When you think you might not meet a goal, take a step back to asses the situation.
  • Be transparent: let your manager and team know as soon as you've slid off-track. They're there to help.
  • Be kind to yourself. If you fail, give yourself some grace.

  • Key Results – Based on objectives, the key results are almost always defined with a specific number.

John Doerr - Investor
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</
Small progress

Most people lack success because they cannot follow a routine to achieve an important goal.

Instead of fighting a losing battle, learn to move around these tasks to start making progress when you can.
