Running a business can be like running a marathon, especially when it comes to achieving big goals. You can break down your goals into multiple milestones to make them easier to reach.
We all know that OKRs are stretch goals and provide a dramatic lift to the current business. This means that OKRs are likely to progress in step functions and most likely will never be linear. Most OKRs tend to have a non-uniform ramp-up. Hence, you can add multiple milestones to better represent your progress.
With 10xGoals, break down success metrics of your quarterly, half-yearly, or annual OKRs into multiple milestones so you know when you get closer to your final outcomes.
