Nijntje, or Miffy as she is known in English-speaking countries, is the little rabbit character who is drawn with only a few simple lines and primary colours. Yet she's meaningfully recognisable as a little rabbit. She doesn't need any more detail to be meaningful. But any less detail and she looks incomplete. Goals that are meaningfully measurable are just like Nijntje.




The Grammar of a Measurable Goal

November 10, 2015 by Stacey Barr | Leave a Comment

Goals, objectives, priority statements and performance results are just some of the terminology we use to describe the stuff we want to measure. There are different ideas and different practices for how to articulate these things, and here I offer you the simplest possible way to do it, so you can successfully find a meaningful way to measure it.
