Givers “make their organizations better,” but they “are often sacrificing themselves.” Everyone wins “in a world where givers succeed.” We can create that world.
We must “move beyond either blindly accepting or blindly rejecting statistics.” instead, we must “be able to tell which numbers are reliable and which ones aren’t.”
“Look past the surface and confront the truth that none of us are what you can see. There’s more to us than that, and we’re all dealing with things that you cannot see.”
Have you failed or not yet succeeded?
When it comes to understanding ourselves and our societies, statistics illuminate the hidden differences between what we know and what we think we know.

Join The Conversation
I want to hear from you.
Whether you’ve attended one of my speeches or consulting sessions, ordered Eyes Wide Open, seen my TED Talk, read one of my blog or social media posts, or you’re simply visiting this site, I want to know what you think. Make a point (big or small), share a story, offer criticism, ask a question—whatever suits you. I’d like to start an open conversation, so I’d appreciate your permission to share your submission in the future—anonymously, if you prefer. Even if I can’t share your thoughts with others, however, I still want to hear them, so please do tell me what’s on your mind. Thank you.
