How to measure effort?

December 9, 2018

How to measure slack vs stretch? i.e. how to measure effort? All of the solutions that jump out at me are measurements by proxy, which aren’t perfect because the effort component is not isolated. But paired with some intuition and a willingness to be honest, the proxies could be pretty useful.

I’d say these are all measurements of performance. I’d like to see a way to measure effort directly, but performance is probably more meaningful anyway, especially doing something useful and consistently raising the standards for performance beyond my current abilities.
