Numbers - 1,2,3,4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unforgiven had blogged on ‘numbers’ sometime back & I did mention to him that they are deluding & evasive and not always correct. While all that is true, when you get the right numbers, it feels AWESOME!!

I’ve always been bad at mathematics, and well, not really worked on improving it much either…so, in school, every time I got one correct answer, I would be like, “Ye Ye Ye” and then try and figure out exactly how I got it :p (Yes, I was THAT bad)…I go absolutely nuts when it comes to things as numbers…

I’ve mentioned before that I am in the teaching profession, and we are rated by participants on how the course was facilitated and so on. These ratings too have fallacies (I agree) and is on a scale of 4.I’ve always been close, but not there yet..3.99, 3.96, 3.90…DARN!!

Now, that I am leaving Trivandrum, I think it a fitting time to get a rating of 4 (on 4) & for my last batch of participants for my favorite topic at that!! (They are the ones I was discussing ‘xpectations’ with also!!)

Yes, its only been once that I’ve got it, and some people get it all the time, but, hey! This is my moment of glory, and this is what motivates me to teach.. So, Ye! Ye! Ye!!

Ye Ye Ye... bask in the glory of your achievement !! Kudos !!

As far as numbers are concerned, its the story that it tells thats more important than the nos themselves.....

like your economics teacher who asked you to bring oranges & apples to school to teach the law of diminshing marginal utility... :-)))
