grants & fundraising

What are the desired outcomes?

Finished first draft of grant. All this talk about evaluations and outcomes and objectives makes me wonder what assessments, if any, I am using to process my own life and writing. I would say that I have developed no standardized assessment tools that any foundation would accept. I simply proceed based on a vague sense of what I feel.

Do any of you guys assess yourselves more scientifically? Like Ben Franklin with his categories to check off each day?
