Measuring things makes progress easier

Becuase remembering and honouring is important

Human beings like to exist in communities. When we get isolated from friends and family it is very easy to start feeling down and lonely. Fortunately, for most of us, the answer is relatively simple. SPend physical time with people. Even if it is just a short conversation at the water cooler or coffee machine. Facebook isn't real ;-)
