The Goal Fits the Team

Beyond the Usual OKR approach

Since I first started writing about OKRs seven years ago, I have had a lot of companies reach out to me for advice. OKRs were originally envisioned to create focus on things that are important but not (yet) urgent. OKRs act as an accelerant on progress toward strategic efforts.



Eisenhower Matrix

OKRs unify effort across a company and are especially powerful when used for

“It’s not important to protect an idea. It’s important to protect the time it takes to make it real. You”
Christina Wodtke, Radical Focus: Achieving Your Most Important Goals with Objectives and Key Results

“Don’t tell people how to do things, tell them what you need done and let them surprise you”
Christina Wodtke, Radical Focus: Achieving Your Most Important Goals with Objectives and Key Results

“When you are tired of saying it, people are starting to hear it” – Jeff Weiner,”
Christina Wodtke, Radical Focus: Achieving Your Most Important Goals with Objectives and Key Results

“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“I thought such awful thoughts that I cannot even say them out loud because they would make Jesus want to drink gin straight out of the cat dish.”
Anne Lamott

“You can either practice being right or practice being kind.”
Anne Lamott

“Someone once asked Somerset Maughham if he wrote on a schedule or only when struck by inspiration. "I write only when inspiration strikes," he replied. "Fortunately it strikes every morning at nine o'clock sharp.”
Steven Pressfield, The War of Art: Winning the Inner Creative Battle

“It was late, and we were tired.
We assumed there would be other nights.
Anna’s breathing started to slow, but I still wanted to talk.
She rolled onto her side.
I said, I want to tell you something.
She said, You can tell me tomorrow.
I had never told her how much I loved her.
She was my sister.
We slept in the same bed.
There was never a right time to say it.
It was always unnecessary.
The books in my father’s shed were sighing.
The sheets were rising and falling around me with Anna’s breathing.
I thought about waking her.
But it was unnecessary.
There would be other nights.
And how can you say I love you to someone you love?
I rolled on my side and fell asleep next to her.
Here is the point of everything I have been trying to tell you, Oskar.
It’s always necessary.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
