Measuring for Success by blogger Leanne Smith, This is another good one.

Original content by Leanne Smith SA676002000

Years ago when I joined an organization, Resource Associates Corporation now known as the Trusted Advisors Network, I relearned the importance of measuring my efforts.  One of the words of wisdom I learned was:

If You Can’t Measure It, You Can’t Manage it

Being always goal driven, sometimes I often failed to include a measurement (excluding dollars), a number, a goal post, a mile marker whatever one wishes to call it.

From that day forward, I have always made sure to include a measurement.  Here in Active Rain, I have monthly points as well as benchmarks (measurements).  Each month I measure my success including blogging points, features, standing in AZ, etc.

One of my colleagues provided an Excel spread sheet that allows me to measure my real estate sales leads.  Even with a very good CRM supplied by Dirt Road Real Estate, I am a visualize person and this Excel spread sheet truly helps me see the 30,000 ft picture or "SEE LEVEL" in one glance. Then it also allows me to quickly drive down to "SEA LEVEL."

Measure for success is not just about numbers but is also a type of reflection as to how we look at ourselves and how we treat others.

The measure of a man is what he does with power.


Even when life challenges us, it’s a gift beyond all measure.

Parker Palmer

The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.

Vince Lombardi

Measure what is measurable and make measurable what is not so.

Galileo Galilei

Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was.

Will, we are the very best at fooling ourselves in what we are accomplishing.  Documentation often will leave us slack jawed on what is the reality.  m
