Don't be a robot

The danger in quantifying everything

by Rachel on September 16, 2013

I love numbers and tracking things. My major was accounting.

 

I love numbers enough to study how to track them for years. A lot of love.

 

I also love strategy – and getting all the potential off the table.

 

But when everything is quantified and you squeeze out the last drop of money you become a robot. It is a mechanical way to approach people and reduces the magic of connection.

 

When you try to suck all the potential money out of your customers, there is a desperation.  Your customers can smell the desperate on you. 

 

People know when you treat them like a profit center. They can feel it.  

Just like your wife knows when you are treating your relationship like a transactional needs exchange – your customers know when you are looking at them like meat.

I would like to express my appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this type of setting. Because of searching through the internet and obtaining ways that were not helpful, I assumed my life was well over. Being alive minus the answers to the issues you’ve fixed all through your main write-up is a critical case, as well as those which may have adversely damaged my entire career if I had not come across your web site. Your actual talents and kindness in controlling all areas was precious. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a point like this. I can also at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot very much for your impressive and sensible help. I will not hesitate to recommend your web sites to anyone who will need counselling on this situation.
