Goals and results

A goal is a desirable state you want to move towards, and which guides what decision you will make.

Results are how you measure progress towards a goal.

Financial wealth

By default, newly created analyses include financial wealth as a decision goal.

You can add results for the financial wealth goal as monetary gains and losses.

Custom goals

For decisions with non-financial goals, you can set custom goals in the main menu.

For goals that aren't intrinsically quantifiable, you can use goal scores to measure progress towards the goal.

Goal scores are the default result units for custom goals and they let you add results to events in your plan using a relative scale where you can:

  • Use larger goal scores for events that move you more towards the goal
  • Use smaller goal scores for events that move you less towards (or away from) the goal
