This month we are looking at the numbers of business. I don’t intend for us to get too deeply into any particular numbers, rather that we get familiar with them and, more importantly, comfortable with them. Numbers are the language of business. We use numbers all the time to talk about time, for instance and prices and recipes and pizza slices. We use numbers for temperature, speed, distance and number of people to invite to a party.
Numbers can be used for abstract concepts, but more often they are used to describe actual things.
We’re going to talk about financial statements, cash flows and budgets over the next few weeks. In all these cases the numbers tell about what has happened or what we are hoping will happen.
To finish off this discussion, here’s a link to a pixilated workshop about time.
What’s your best time tip?
