Percentile feedback is an interesting topic we’ve covered here in previous years. Our good friend Seth Roberts does a masterful job explaining the concept and giving examples using his own experience here and here. Nick was inspired by Seth’s work and sought to incorporate it into his daily productivity tracking. He presented his method at a QS Pittsburgh meetup in 2012:

Of course, Nick didn’t stop there. He’s continued hacking and experimenting with his productivity. This recently culminated in something he called “Maniac Week” – a full week to see how much work he could accomplish. Of course, he also tracked his work and broke down his findings and insights in this great post.
