09 Resolutions: Focus on Results, Not Just Actions

Here’s my curmudgeonly post about new year’s resolutions: focus on results, not just actions. And make them measurable. “Jogging five days a week” is a fine activity but what’s the goal it’s meant to support? Do you want to add 5 lbs of muscle, reduce your BMI by 10%, lower your resting heartbeat? Great, then start with that statement and figure out what it takes to achieve your measurable goals. Fluffy intent doesn’t catalyze action.

Yes, i’m a pain-in-the-ass product manager who thinks about things like this. But at least you don’t need to live with me like this one does 🙂
