  1. User is interested in metrics, which can be directly or indirectly controlled by or an outcome of his/her actions. Anything apart from that is secondary/ unnecessary.
  2. Graphs do communicate large amounts of data effectively but also add to the cognitive load. Thus they must be used only when absolutely necessary. Key metrics can also be presented in textual format.
  3. Data is addictive.
