Deltas

Knowing your numbers for the current month is good, but knowing when things are getting better or worse is really what it’s all about. Often it’s the trends, rather than the raw numbers, that teach you the most about where you need to focus attention. ...

2019 is already seven weeks old. I always try and take some time at the very beginning of the year to stop and plan, rather than rush to start. It usually works well with the long summer break here in the southern hemisphere generally being a quiet time for most people (although I’ve also mixed it up this year by spending some time in the snow in the north).

Below are many of the same excuses I gave a few weeks ago. However hopefully there is some light at the end of the tunnel. ...

Moving to La

There is a great parable about the difficulties of estimating and the hopelessness of trying to catch up to stick to an original unrealistic schedule, based on a hike from San Francisco to Los Angeles, along the coastal route. If you haven’t seen it before I suggest you read it. This post will still be here when you get back: ...

First Steps

One of the problems we’re trying to solve with One Metric is getting people started with sharing their numbers. But one of the things we’ve learned is that starting with a blank page and wondered what you should include in your reports initially can be really daunting. ...

Patience

Self-imposed artificial deadlines can be brutal. In my plan I wanted to have launched this thing by the end of September. As I type it’s the 2nd October, so … about that. :-/ ...
