pray vs plan

One of the business blogs I read, Seth Godin's, had a particularly well worded post up today: No everything is not going to be okay

I blurted out an "Amen" this morning upon reading.

One word: metrics.

Business, athletics, life, whatever. If you can't measure, gauge, compare - you don't know where you are relative to your goals. the technical term for that is "lost". Which is rarely in the same sentence as "success" with any positive connotations. Do you hope and pray, because knowing might be scary, or do you track, measure, and adjust?
