Numbers are a strange part of our business and society. Even if you’re not a ‘numbers person’ and hated math, you generally spend a significant amount of time dealing with numbers. When a baby is born the question straight after their name and sex is generally, ‘how heavy?’
From then on numbers are the measure of growth, of development, of test scores, of financial stability, of success. Business is judged by numbers, evangelists record salvations by numbers, churches measure growth by numbers.
It is almost impossible to truly measure the must important things by numbers. Good Marriages. Personal growth. Spiritual transformation. Or even happiness.
We continue to measure by numbers.
[Numbers – Today was a day of numbers, of forecasting the next financial year, like I really have a clue. Will it be 1 or 2 or 4 or 2 or 2? Shot was taken at agora last night]
