In the Book of Numbers, an entire book in the Bible, we see the early realization of the significance of counting and recording. God ordered Moses and Aaron to take a census of the Israelite community, showcasing the age-old practice of tracking numbers to maintain order and structure. This emphasis on tracking numbers is not limited to ancient times; it continues to hold relevance in today's business world.

Tracking metrics in business provides clarity on where you stand and which direction to take for assured growth. It allows you to understand what's working, what's not, and where your attention is needed. Just as Luke 14:28 states, "For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it?" This verse emphasizes the need for planning and understanding our numbers. Tracking numbers helps us count the cost and make informed decisions for our businesses.

While numbers can sometimes be intimidating, embracing them is embracing the truth of your business's state. It provides objective feedback on the effectiveness of your strategies and operations. Consider successful enterprises like Amazon or Google; their adeptness at utilizing data to enhance customer experience and optimize operations is a testament to the power of metrics.

In the bustling sector of real estate, tracking numbers is especially crucial. Lack of number tracking is often the main reason why most realtors fail. By tracking metrics like sales, marketing efforts, and customer feedback, real estate agents can identify areas for improvement, make data-driven decisions, and ultimately thrive in the competitive market.

Praying for divine wisdom is also essential when delving into the realm of metrics. James 1:5 reminds us, "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." As you venture into tracking numbers, seek divine guidance to interpret data and make enlightened decisions. If numbers are not your forte, ask God to lead you to the right person who can help, such as a CPA or a bookkeeper.
