Humans love to count. Here’s a list of some somethings we count obsessively:
- Our age
- Our money
- The value of our house
- The value of 401K (superannuation fund)
- Friends, Fans, Followers
- Hits, views, comments.
- Market share
- Percentage profit
- Traffic road toll
Really, we count almost everything. None of us are immune to this human symptom of counting. It’s the ultimate technique for organising and planning, in fact it’s what makes us top of the food chain.
So the question for startups is this: What are you tools are your creating that your people count and compete with?
