When I started, I’d look at numbers and not know what to do. I couldn’t see the “story” the numbers were telling me.
Being analytical isn’t just about numbers.
Being analytical isn’t about numbers—it’s about developing healthy skepticism and curiosity.
The benefit of developing an analytical mindset and skill set is two-fold:
  1. It will help you make more informed decisions in every facet of your life
  2. It will give you a competitive edge among your peers
So even if you go into a role where you don’t work with numbers, it’s still worthwhile to learn how to be analytical.
