Facts should not be ignored because facts mean the state of things as they really are, or reality. Facts in the form of data are the accumulation of information that takes us closer to reality. Facts and data do not necessarily describe total reality. If we don’t have the facts we may be failing and not know it until it’s too late to recover. Some of its benefits include the ability to design a better plan, function more efficiently, and project certain behaviors and their consequences. No one has ever started a business or an organization knowing all the facts, nevertheless before planning, it is important to get as much information as possible. We will also come closer to reality and be able to make better decisions based on good, sound, accessible information.
Lastly, whatever we build, we must build on truth. Facts bring us closer to the truth and this becomes a solid foundation on which to build and work towards the bigger picture.
