Instead of going only with the words, see what the numbers say. Don’t also go only with the numbers but including the numbers is certainly a better strategy.
Instead of taking the decisions based on emotions, match it up with the numbers too. If the number says a different story, you at least have a different angle, which you certainly need to think upon.
We tend to make decisions based on emotions based on how we feel for someone or something at a given time. When mapped these feelings with the numbers, we can see the real story.
Love the numbers and live them.
