Thank you for commenting Tom Kuegler! Yeah, playing the numbers game is a dangerous game. Sure, we need some way to measure progress, but the numbers don’t define us either. I think we should be careful putting too much weight on them where you disappoint yourself when you don’t reach them.
Also, I do want to be clear that there’s also nothing wrong with dreaming, otherwise we don’t have that north star to aim for. We just have to make sure that it’s our star, and not someone else’s.
