    There is an article in this month's PFM by Marc Bluestone on measuring things in your business. (Also available to be read online at http://www.pictureframingmagazine.com/pdfs/Features/Nov04_Bluestone.pdf )

    This is a great article (yeah, I know, Bob, it doesn't go deep enough, but for a trade magazine article, it's pretty good!)

    In the past, when I did all my "measurements" by hand, I always calculated which customers were "new" and which were "repeats." I had not figured out quite how to do that with my QB, but after reading his article, I realized something that I could do to each "sales receipt" that would tag it as new/repeat. I already do that with "zip codes", and "date in" so at least next year, I'll be able to track my customer repeats vs "one time onlys".

    For someone with a bad (or good) case of "detailitis" this is just one more bit of info for me to study. This is what I do between Christmas and New Years and into January - what about you all? What do you study - and what do you do with what you find out?
