    Great ideas. I have never thought of this in terms of metrics before. But I do practice taking a personal inventory every day based on the prayer of St. Francis:

    Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. – Have I added to the Peace
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love; – Have I pivoted from hatred to love
    where there is injury,pardon; – Have I brought comfort to injury
    where there is doubt, faith; – Have I promoted confidence
    where there is despair, hope; – Have I encouraged the discouraged
    where there is darkness, light; -Did I focus on silver linings or clouds
    and where there is sadness, joy. – Did I share a smile

    O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
    to be consoled as to console;
    to be understood as to understand;
    to be loved as to love.
    For it is in giving that we receive;
    it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
    and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
