Make dashboard more task focused
Currently there's a lot of screen space devoted to showing who I'm logged-in as on the dashboard ("Your Goals") page. I know who I am, so that's not useful information to me. I'm there to (1) enter data and (2) check for goals that need work. The (2) part is pretty well covered, but data entry is shoved down on one side. I'd rather have it up at the top like an "omni-bar" with auto-focus, so that I can update my most urgent goal without even clicking.

I like this! Personally, I never think to use the Quick Add box in the sidebar. So I'd love to try it as an omni-bar at the top. Also the username (and avatar) are right there in the upper right so the "bob is minding" in the title is especially pointless.
