Anyone who's using their financials to drive their business is doing the equivalent of driving their car in the rearview mirror. It's never a happy outcome. You should check your financials often, just as you do the rearview mirror. But the important stuff is happening elsewhere. Your customers, your people, your competition, etc., are where you should focus your attention. You learn a lot more from failure than you do from success. Failure is underrated as a learning tool; it can knock you back at the time but can also teach you how to move forward with success.
