IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Just like statistics, anything with numbers can be selective honesty.
Certain things cannot be measured just by the number of likes and shares.
The way a product is designed, how simple and intuitive it is, the consumers trust in the product, their love and hate towards it, how they interact with other products, and how they use it as time passes.

Being able to achieve a success metric is hard, but knowing which metric to achieve is even more important. Discover what you value and choose your own metrics for success, otherwise, your environment will dictate it for you, which could be unfulfilling for you.
Work towards your own idea of success and don’t let “FOMO” make you feel like a failure because you’re not meeting someone else’s metrics for success.

There are two extremes of evaluating productivity: Input vs. Output
Some consultants are paid when the company profits go up, but no money is owed when there is no profit.
But, early management theorists noticed just having a consultant made people work harder. A consultant can make a fortune, even though the advice is worthless. The problem with the pay-for-results consultant is that the payment comes too soon. An extended period could give better insight.
A dimension in measuring productivity is looking at the big picture or fine-grained details.
But there is a trade-off. The big picture is slow to measure and may only be visible in the long run.
