The other day I heard a scientist say there is no such thing as a bad number. Sure, but it still sucks when you see a result that upsets you.
We have all been there, all avoided the scales for extended periods of time, bargained with ourselves about what we will do tomorrow. No more pies Thomas, no more pies.
Numbers can help us manage our behaviour. We all need boundaries and discipline, especially in organisations, but once you realise that, it usually takes less effort to stay within the lines. Trick is to know the important ones.
This blog is full of ideas that will hopefully help you find the business numbers you should know. I like the one about eating cake.
Have a lovely day.
