Let’s say you fell in love with jogging. You went from half-hearted attempt to get the family doctor off your back to indispensable nightly jogs in a matter of weeks. And you get better. You know you’re getting better, but all you have is a feeling and a loose estimate. You really want to know what your improvement curve looks like, so you start tracking your time, maybe download an app. Soon, you begin to aggregate data.
