Thursday’s Toilet Tragedy

The back end of last year I got lazy.

So this year I’ve been training pretty hard. 

Stepping on the scales on Thursday, I was 6 lbs down. 

Good news and something I chalked up to increased grit.


… Well, until I reminded myself of the food poisoning I had last week.

A sorry state of affairs that left me trapped in the toilet for the best part of the day as all fluid was drained from my body and from both ends.

The real reason I suspect I was down 6 lbs, and the realisation that I was tracking and celebrating the wrong number.

And herein lies the point of the email today.

In this game it’s easy to do the exact same thing – celebrate bad metrics.

Chances are, you see the same posts online as me:

“Great news – we’ve added 6 new employees”

“Great news – we’ve opened two new offices”

“Great news – we’ve doubled turnover”

And here’s the thing, just like a 6lb loss – employees, offices and turnover no way to measure success – despite what the arsehole online will have you believe.

See, profit is the ONLY metric that matters.

Give me less employees, less offices and less turnover for more profit A-N-Y day of the week. 

I will always happily sacrifice bragging rights for the bottom line.

The same goes for weight loss and muscle mass too. 

Until next time.
