What is a KPI?

In marketing lectures, webinars and keynote speeches you may hear the term ‘KPI’ a lot. In a recent conversation I had a colleague ask me what a KPI actually was and how I use them. So I thought I would talk about that here briefly.

Movies: "Crazy, Stupid, Love."

Movies:  "Crazy, Stupid, Love."

 

I had put off seeing this one, in part because of a personal aversion to previous Steve Carell comedies, with their humor so often based on humiliation of one sort or another.  (I can say the same for most of Ben Stiller’s oeuvre.)  

 

But I’m here to tell you that “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” (yes, the title really does have a period at the end) is a delightful adult comedy:  smart, funny, sophisticated and touching.

Grain field progress - High Summer!

The grain field has really exploded these past few weeks.  The corn really liked all that heat we had!  It went from about knee high to taller than me right now!  The ears of corn are just beginning to form and swell.  The barley has "headed out" meaning that the heads of grain are emerging from the stalks.  The small needle like shoots that are attached to each grain are called "awns".  Awns are pretty interesting.  In barley they aide in photosynthesis.  In some strains of wheat such as "emmer" the awns actually have little hairs on them that contract and move with humidity.  This is important because if the grains were to ever hit ground these little hairs would contract and help to push the little grain into the soil!  Very cool!
