When working towards a new goal, you’ll probably have to send emails to find out things from different people at some point. It will be important to measure your progress. You could say: Hey, today I’ll contact 12 people. You’ll work hard and get it done. Check! But what if you also added: Hej, and within a week I want to have a personal meeting with one of those 12 people? You could work hard and not achieve your goal. This is scarier, right? But honestly which measure is more meaningful for your project? Keep in mind that it’s almost never about sending out emails but about creating a meaningful connection with another person.
