Today we are going to talk about measuring things in order to get them done. Terry, what do you think are some of the key barriers to getting things done?
I read a great book earlier this year called The Four Disciplines of Execution. And in this book they describe how we try to do five things.

We try to do ten things instead of trying to do one or two things and actually getting them done. And, lag metrics are, was I successful yesterday? Lead metrics are, will I be successful tomorrow?
So let me give you an example. A number of years ago my dad wanted to lose 80 pounds.
But to be able to act today and predict will I be successful, he was able to watch two other things. He was able to see how much was I eating each day, and he kept track of the points that he ate, and how much did I exercise that day.
And so by keeping track of those two lead metrics, he knew if we would be successful on the scales a week from now.
It was Weight Watchers. They met every week and so they had a weekly accountability, everyone was right there and they got on the scale so they knew if they were successful or not.
So people that have a more structured view of the world, they may find these metrics natural, comfortable. They may even say, hey, I do this all the time but people who have a less structured way of thinking, they may have to work harder at setting up metrics and sticking to them. It kind of makes me think Jack, do you use metrics in your Intelligent Fast Failure too?
I tend to be a less structured person.
And that imprints in my mind the importance of generating ideas and practicing. And this really gets back to what we were talking about at the beginning. Pick a few things that are really important to you and then find a few metrics that will help you to track your progress.
