This is one I’m excited about.
One of the serious wins of Metrics is that they makes progress evident: they turn a set of numbers into a tangible experience of how things are going, with a satisfying visualization of results relative to a target.
One of the other serious wins of Metrics is that they make it dead simple for your clients to track that progress at regular intervals, thus eliminating much of the tendency to forget as well as keeping goals regularly within their awareness between coaching sessions.
Those two major wins have been combined: now when your client replies to a Metric reminder email with their number for the day, they’ll get back an email response which shows them their freshly-updated progress in graph form, like so:
It’s an effect that I’ve already enjoyed while testing, and one which I think many clients will benefit from.
Why? Because it’s satisfying to get that feedback right away, and that satisfaction motivates further effort towards next data point.
