KIWIs help us maintain our work-life balance.
The KIWIs are behaviors that we already do as part of a balanced everyday life. We only change our KIWIs (start or stop the behavior) when we are under significant stress. For example, for a person that regularly goes to bed at 10 pm, staying up late may be an indicator that work is becoming too much. Or, someone that regularly cooks homemade meals may identify fast food as an indicator of stress.
At Heron we track our KIWIs weekly so we can see when our behavior is starting to change before we feel the full effects of stress. We track our KIWIs in yellow or red when the behavior is off for a couple of weeks. The Heron user becomes aware that they are falling off balance and re-prioritizes. Good KIWI weeks are always tracked in green.
