OKR: Approach to goal setting
A proper goal has to describe both what you will achieve and how you’re going to measure its achievement. The keywords here are “as measured by”, since measurement is what makes a goal a goal. Without it, you do not have a goal, all you have is a desire.
Learn from the past
Anytime you fail to make a change, consider it as a step towards your goal. Some work towards your goal is better than no work at all. Don’t give in out of frustration or resentment. Just get back on the wagon and try again.
