We often say, “whatever gets measured, gets done” … or words to that effect.

Everything you can count may not be worth counting

We can count pennies. But it takes a lot of them to amount to much.

We can count pencils in the supply room but their value is insignificant, say, when compared to counting computers.

Can you count Attitude or Culture?

Contrarily, a positive Attitude is a common denominator in great employees.
