Clear examples
When you’re choosing a SuperGoal, it’s important to include your team every step of the way. Start by articulating the problem at hand, brainstorm and choose a SuperGoal, and finish with a commitment check from everyone on the team.
Step 1: Articulate the problem
Start by describing the problem your team is facing (consider making the problem writeup ). Why does it call for a SuperGoal? Remember, SuperGoals should only be used when the stakes are much higher than usual. Grow-or-die type situations.

Draft your problem here.

Step 2: Brainstorm a SuperGoal
Next, invite your team to brainstorm potential SuperGoals. When you add an idea, grade it on the 3 key criteria of SuperGoals:
A clear and urgent timeframe
Open-ended method of achievement
A single metric
After brainstorming, ask each person to upvote or downvote each idea. Then, flip the switch to sort the ideas by votes and discuss as a team. Finally, select one, and only one, SuperGoal from the list.

I feel like the goal should be focused on revenue, not user growth

Mostly committed. 10% weekly growth feels like a bit of a stretch though.
