I don't often look at the stats of this site. Overall traffic, keywords, geographic breakdown of visitors, etc, but recently I spent a few minutes looking through a bunch of stats and analysis. Here are the 3 conclusions that I drew:
1. There is a statistic for everything - Hey "Apple Computer, using Firefox, in New York State, on August 11th @ 7:52pm." I'm super thankful for your visit...I really feel like we connected!
2. Good Content is Timeless - Blog posts that I wrote over a years ago still get regular hits. If you write about stuff that matters...people will not stop finding use for it.
3. Be Decisive! - The number 1 post was THIS ONE on being Decisive. From the number of visits, to the keywords in Google (multiple spellings, contexts, etc).
I was immediately struck with the conclusion that being decisive is difficult, and as such is rare. In a manager/leader, in a friend/partner in a parent, sibling, co-worker...you name it!
It's so refreshing being around decisive people. Thankfully, the team that I get to work with regularly is decisive and pushes me to be as well. I always say that I would rather have a decisively bad plan, that can be adapted and refined than an indecisive good one, that takes too many people, too much time to implement.
A lesson that isn't as much learned, as it is committed to fighting against...Be Decisive. Be Intentional. It's what everyone wants...so let's give it to them!
