Announcing the release of Action Ratings and Reports!
It’s hard to carve out time to work towards your long-term goals, so it’s important that when you do you’re working on the actions that will help you the most. With Action Ratings and Reports, we’re making it easier for you to understand if your actions are optimized for achieving your goal.
Action Ratings let you rate an Action across three dimensions: Difficulty, Performance, and Value. Then, with Reports, you can see averages and week by week trends for actions you’ve done over a given date range and set of labels.
Tips to take advantage of these features
Make sure you’re pushing yourself. If your goal is to learn or improve a specific skill or competency, you need to make sure you’re working on actions that are difficult enough such that you’re challenged to get better. If everything you do is so easy that you don’t even have to try you’re not going to improve much.
Optimize your Action Plan. Look at the value of your actions as you do them and use that information to optimize the rest of your action plan. You may find that certain types of actions aren’t worth doing so you can remove future instances of those from your plan, and vice-versa.
Identify strengths and opportunities to grow. You may find that specific types of actions are easy (or difficult) for you, or that you perform well (or poorly) at specific types of actions. This information can help you identify your strengths and opportunities for you to improve.
While it’s better to do some work than no work, it’s best to do the right work. Use Action Ratings and Reports to make sure you’re doing the right actions to achieve your goals. Work smarter because you can’t always work harder.
