“If you’re going to doubt something, doubt your limits.” — Don Ward
Sources of Insight experienced 150,000+ unique visitors this past month. Three months ago, it was at 101,000 unique visitors for the month.
I like to keep track of meaningful milestones and simple numbers. 150,000 is interesting to me. I remember when my traffic was 150 unique visitors per day.
I like having simple numbers at my finger tips because people ask me simple stats questions like, “What’s your traffic at now on Sources of Insight?” or, “How many Getting Results the Agile Way books have you sold?” I like simple answers like, “150,000 unique visitors per month”, or, “About 100+ books per month (with plans to amplify.)”
In one of my old groups, our key metrics were: awareness, usage, and sat (satisfaction.) People can’t use something if they aren’t aware of it. And just because they are aware of it, doesn’t mean they use it. And just because they use it, doesn’t mean they like it. In fact, one of the ultimate tests of whether somebody really likes something, is whether they would recommend it. We captured this as our Net Promoter score. (Harvard Business Review introduced this as “One Number You Need to Grow”, back in 2003 … and they were right. It’s tough to grow if people don’t recommend your stuff in a world-of-mouth marketing world.) One of the most cutting questions you can ask is, “Would you recommend it?”
If you have the chance, please share Sources of Insight with friends, family, and colleagues, or anybody you know, who needs a lift in life. Even if I never wrote another article, there are more than 800 articles on mind, body, emotions, career, finance, and relationships, including articles by best-selling authors and experts around the world. Don’t worry, more articles are on the way. I have some very interesting people to share with you, including a #1 Amazon best-selling self-published fiction author, and I plan to dive deeper and share more proven practices with you in the areas of business skills, leadership, project management, and strategy, among other things. Strategy + project management are game changers for life.

I drive to make readers of Sources of Insight some of the most effective people on the planet by providing access to the best books, people, and quotes with insight and action you can use for work and life … to really help you “Stand on the shoulders of giants.”
