Three months ago I started writing to update the BLBS tribe on my monthly results.

- You can read the November post here.
- You can read the December post here.
This post is focused on transparent leadership and how I track the key metrics that matter to me. My goal is to inspire you to do something similar.
I have 4 categories containing 16 metrics.
Concise. Clear. Easy to get the pulse of Better Leaders Better Schools.
Now that it’s the new year you can see how I started out 2020 compared to last year (where I ended and monthly average).
I also read this in The Daily Stoic today.
When I see an anxious person, I ask myself, what do they want? For if a person wasn’t wanting something outside of their own control, why would they be stricken by anxiety?
Many of these metrics are out of my control, but important. That’s why I only look at them when I update them at the end of the month and create a post like this.
I would be anxious if I looked at these numbers daily. That’s why I only look at inputs on a daily basis.
For example, to fill my live event where I help leaders craft a meaningful school vision what can I control:
- Sending out personal invites
- Connecting with leaders in my network to share with people connected to them
- Creating content about vision with a soft ask to register for the event
- Talking about the event on my podcast
- Choosing whether or not to run advertisements on social
What is out of my control? How many people register.
