Thinking about Metrics

Our lust for analytics sometimes divorces us from our humanity.

We have “superpowers” that are  mysterious and challenging to quantify, and, that are at the heart of who we are as human beings.

Only with mutual respect for both the metrics and the mysteries will we thrive as a species.

This is all top of mind for me, at the moment, as I engage with the education non-profits I work with, and also with a few health projects.

In education, how do we “measure” (or even document) curiosity, engagement, passion?   These are qualities that strongly contribute to success.

For health, what are the qualities that contribute to being able to maintain a positive attitude and persist toward positive behavior change as needed?

Please feel free to offer your own thoughts and experiences.
