In order to continually find improvement you have to measure the metrics that matter in your life. Whether personal, financial, professional, etc. tracking your success is a must.
Sports evolved around keeping score. Within sports, various statistics are kept. When an individual, coach, or team analyzes these stats they get a better idea of who played well, what worked for the team, and what needs to be improved upon. It also offers extra motivation whenever you produce stats that make you feel successful and directly impact your goals.
Do you keep stats in your life? Do you measure how much money you saved from each pay check? Do you track the number of times you and your spouse go out on dates? Do you keep a victory log to celebrate and remind yourself of your achievements?
If not, you might consider doing so. Life is a game and depending on how you play, your stats are either bringing you closer to the Hall of Fame or getting cut. Think about what metrics are important to you...
How many workouts did I get in last week?
How much sleep did I get last night?
How many times do I tell my children I love them?
How much money am I saving/investing for our future?
How many words did I write yesterday?
What isn't tracked gets forgotten. When no records are kept, history becomes a mystery. How will you know what you've tried? How will you know what worked? How will you know where you stand in all the important areas in life unless you keep score?
