The numbers and the feelings / by Evan La Ruffa

How do we really measure our impact? How do we evaluate whether we are doing work that fulfills us & makes a difference?

Numbers are surely helpful but the feelings are just as, if not more important.

We have to love the process. Because then, winning is just getting to do it again.

In fact, meaningful numbers with positive cycles of value, purpose, and connection enables the best of both worlds.

If you’re U2, do you measure your success in record sales or creative joy + people inspired?

The way the work resonates in us, the value we bring to our people, the meaning provided, these are all root indicators of purpose.

Numbers we can take to the bank, but the feelings indicate if we’re in the right spot.
