I like how an article about metrics driven goals starts out, “A dream without a goal is just a wish.” – Dave Kerpen
I think I am going to have to adopt this as one of the mantras for when I speak with a lot of the vendors I work with. There are those instances when it just seems like someone doesn’t want to be measured on something, nor held accountable, and that’s simply unnaceptable.
Personally, I wish I could be super succesful. But wishing and aiming for a certain goal are two different things, as is generalizing success. The success I have in mind has many layers and if I don’t identify what theya re and set individual goals for each layer, I’ll be left wishing, wanting, and hoping.
What did you do today? Did you set any metrics driven goals?
