A special note on the goal: Please note that when you have an objective goal, whether the goal is reached or not will be a binary decision. You will either Pass or Fail. For instance, if the goal is improving productivity of your team room by 60%, and you improve it by 55%, it will be a Fail, simple because 55 is less than 60. Listing improvements you introduced as an excuse for not reaching the goal is also considered a failure. You shouldn't negotiate or try to set lower goals for yourself. That would be a recipe for failure. Instead, you should set a higher goal and always deliver the results.
