The fact is, if you want more or less of something in your life, it’s very helpful to measure it, because you manage what you measure . I’m now calling this the “Strategy of Monitoring.”
Maybe there’s something you’d like to change in your life — to get more of something good or less of something bad. Try this: figure out a very concrete way to measure and track it . By counting the things that count — and pushing yourself to find a way to count the things that seem as if they can’t be counted — you make sure they’re part of your life.
