Try this for me (and actually do it) and don't read ahead.
raise your hand as high as you can.
now raise it higher. I bet you did didn't you.
The point being is you can equate "pushing yourself" with raising your hand the first time, and doing so for a time or finish with the second. You had to (and could) push harder because you had something to measure it against, a bar so to speak.
My world is all about quantifying things, productivity, outcomes, budget, etc. Are you meeting productivity?
By how much?
Are you improving patient care?
You get the idea, if you can't measure against something, you can't show progress, value, trending etc..
I'm not saying these are not worth doing, just not something I could get all geared up for.
