  • Pick vague areas to measure, to make sure the KRs provide a balanced way to look at your life.
  • Add a metric. Learn to find the right metrics and measure them regularly.
  • Focus On What Won’t Get Done and decide what is valuable, and what is less valuable.
  • Find Someone to Keep You On Track It can be hard to build the habit of checking in on your OKRs each week.

Personal Objective Key Results - OKR

OKRs take big lofty goals, segment them into objectives, and then tie each of those objectives to actionable Key Results.

The Objective is the point on the horizon that you want to get to, and the Key Results are the measures that confirm to you that you’re making progress.

Objectives and Key Results (OKR)

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

They are used to focus a group or individual around a bold goal. The objective sets a goal for a set period of time, usually a quarter. The key results tell you if the objective has been met by the end of the time.

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.”
