Mini-metrics, rituals of reflection

On mini-metrics as a scaffold for personal reflection and navigation.

Enjoyed this post from Graham Lally, thinking about the deeper purposes of logging through a proposal for mini-metrics and personal rituals of reflection:

a mini-metrics practice should be “lightweight” in the sense that it encourages regular reflection, to bind together our own self-narrative through time. That is, its main purpose is not to generate data or blogposts, but to reconnect our own imagination with our own memory, in a way that has been disrupted by the constant interruption of the attention economy.

I’m interested in the balance of qual/quant/other forms of information, and how this might diverge from the self-tracking practices that were (or, at least, seemed to be?) everywhere in the early 2010s.
