We Always Improve What We Track
Information helps us understand our situation better. Every team has an expected deliverable that they are responsible for. These are the things we measure to make sure we are on track. If I don’t ever weigh myself, I am going to have a hard time understanding the ramifications of my diet. If I get bad news from the doctor about the impact of my weight, I will likely begin to weigh myself more often. The act of tracking my weight helps me make more informed decisions which result in the goal of better health. If I refuse to weigh myself, I can be susceptible to “feeling” good about my diet without being able to make an informed decision. Why is it that weight is an acceptable measurable in a health crisis but other measurables are avoided because they make us feel bad?
