Alfred Einstein said, “Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.”
First, not everything that counts can be counted. Leadership often deals with the bottom-line mentality. I realize what we measure is important, but the value of influence and character, cannot be measured. The significance is life changing.
Second, not everything that can be counted counts. We may have multiplied thousands of dollars sitting in a number of investments, but what is it really worth? We may spend countless hours reading the Bible, but do we make proper application?
Our leadership may not always be measured, but it should count for something.
