On March 14, the world celebrated Pi Day, the tribute to the number 3.14, which represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, and is both an irrational and infinite number. Pi has been calculated out to 24 trillion decimal places, a calculation that took 105 days. While the official holiday only goes back to 1988, historians believe pi was originally discovered around 2,000 B.C.
While most of us who aren’t mathematicians or computer scientists can only shake our heads in wonder at such numbers that computers can now calculate, I like to look at it as inspiration. That like pi, our potential as human beings to effectively communicate is infinite (and perhaps sometimes irrational as well).Are you and/or your organization living up to your communication potential? Is there something you can do better in that regard to advance your interests?
Pi tells us that there’s always more you can do.
