How’s Your Heart?
Kardia Mobile is a so-called medical-grade EKG device that can tell you the condition of your heart in just 30 seconds. The pitchman in the advertisement asks people on the street “how’s your heart?”. They say, “my heart is fine”, then he says, “how do you know?”.
The point he makes is if you are not monitoring your heart from time to time you cannot possibly know if it is fine or not. The same can be said for your balance sheet.
