Thought for the month

“A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a quip and worried to death by a frown on the right man’s brow.” Ovid, Roman Poet (43 BC – 17 AD).

The cost of counting
Measurement is an integral part of science and the search for understanding the world. In business we often say you cannot manage what you cannot measure. An interesting essay on measuring things does not directly contradict these thoughts but reminds us to be objective in deciding what we measure. Remember that not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.
