Return on Investment

Ah yes, the ROI.

The frame of thinking to determine

Whether or not the potential outcome justifies the input.

A fancy way of asking “Is it worth it?”

Right now it’s a useful question when considering

What you are going to invest in next year.

You can make decisions based on things you can measure.

Employment. Money. Followers. Sales.

Some things, however, are not so easy to measure.

Peace of mind, for example.

Or the strength of your relationships.

Or the 52 Sunday mornings of the year spent in a church service

When you could have been working.

These things are “worth it” for entirely different reasons.

In a world with seemingly infinite possibilities,

But with finite time and energy

The question of “Is it it worth it”

Calls for the consideration

Of far more than tangible outcomes.
