Methods to select your perfect metric
HEART = Happiness, Engagement, Adoption, Retention, Task (Kerry Rodden)
Across these dimensions, you will identify goals, signals, and metrics to measure how well your product is doing.
Goal = something the user is trying to do or something you are trying to help them to do
Signal = a change in user behavior that indicates that the user is achieving the goal
Metric = a way to measure signal and quantify how much user behavior has changed

Concludes with a walk you through an example for an imaginary product.
