A Compelling Read

The Tyranny of Metrics

Unquestionably one of my more compelling reads this year.

A reminder that while data of course has value - for the measurement of the quantifiably measurable - so much of what’s most important, most meaningful and most valuable defies distillation into an empirical data point…

A sense of clarity
A sense of purpose
A feeling of confidence
Of being inspired
Of desire
Of motivation
And more

Show me a number that can quantify any one of these.

Patrick McGoohan in “The Prisoner” had it right.

Simon led by example and provided clear tips on structure, inserting words, leading with stories and stance. Now I can sense the distinct uptick in engagement in a room of diverse nationalities and backgrounds... prepare more comfortably around my key messages and theme.
