Today’s episode is about why we need to stop buying into numbers and statistics. In many cases, people take the data they’re given as an absolute, unavoidable truth. But, the more complex the data, the more room for misinterpretation. I talk about using numbers as guidance, as indicators or part of the picture, but not as an ultimate truth.
