To Your Point


Points are earned. Whether you score a basket (2 points) or make a valid argument, the number of points you earn predetermines your success.

Points separate things. Your SAT score separates you from someone else. The period (also a point) separates sentences from each other. The likes on your Facebook page are points indicating the popularity of your post.

People compete for points but we just as easily show praise. The whole point of points is to give credit where credits are due. For instance, we may buy someone else’s work, retweet them, or build on top of of one of their ideas. Steve Jobs would ignore your points and then take full credit for them.

Points are open to interpretation. They only become valid through gamification or within the acknowledgement of others.

What’s the point? Everything is a point just waiting to be noticed.
