“Not everything that can be counted, counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.” (Albert Einstein) – from the Jack’s Winning Words blog.
Einstein was a very smart man in more ways than many associate with his name. Today’s saying attributed to him is from the metaphysical side of Einstein and not the scientific world that we normally associate with him.
Certainly things like compassion and empathy, thoughtfulness and thoroughness, integrity and professionalism are all things that count in business and in life that can’t really be counted. If you have those things, people will say that they can count on you.
What traits do you value in others that maybe can’t be counted, but which count to you in your relationships with them? How many of those things do you count in your own life? What other things count to you? Do people who know you or do business with you know that they can count on you? That’s what counts!
