The Promise of Numbers

What is it about numbers?  They entice us with their simplicity.  They promise an outcome without a struggle.

  • 10 money-saving ideas
  • 5 foods that increase life expectancy
  • 10 best recipes for summer
  • 8 ways to boost your immune system
  • 30 days to a better and happier life
  • 10 ways to find hope

Numbers make it seem easy to achieve results.  But when has anything long-lasting been easy? Saving money means making difficult choices – taking a vacation or saving for retirement.   It is simple to add foods that will increase my life expectancy, but it is very hard (especially for me) to give up cupcakes, chips and ice cream. I know there are ways to make my life happier, but sometimes there are times to grieve.

I’m a big fan of numbers.   They give us perspective and a point of reference.   Perhaps the objective is more about implementation.  The adventure, the challenge and glory come from the struggle.

The Adventure, The Challenge, The Glory

  1. It is interesting to think about how numbers affect our lives every day. Numbers have been around for tens of thousands of years. Maybe invented in the Middle East or in South Africa. That would be a good research item.
