I believe the minimum persistence value needed for getting in shape would be a year.  Although it is possible to make significant progress in just a few weeks, that isn?t always the case.  You might spend months at the same level as new habits are forming or you reach a plateau in your conditioning.

We identified a cohort of companies in our sample with apparently no fear of data. We call them ?datavores?. When making decisions about how to grow their sales, they rely on data and analysis over experience and intuition. They collect data comprehensively, analyze it thoroughly and use it to make decisions. But they are in the minority: only 18% of the companies we surveyed compared with 43% who make decisions on the basis of experience and intuition.

It is no secret that consumers are engaging across devices and media. These always-connected people, using Twitter on their smartphones, can now be more efficiently and intelligently reached through initiatives like this one. Consumers are cross-channel, marketers must be as well. I have seen the power of ad technology and automation to make marketers? lives easier, giving them insight, control and performance in a diffuse and ever-changing digital marketing landscape. A natural evolution for Twitter Twitter has long faced the conflicting drives of every social platform: serve the audience, remaining relevant and unobtrusive, while still attracting marketing spend. Through this move they are bringing new audiences and data to the table. Scale helps brands pan for gold. To find that gold, you need to start with a lot of sand, and you need the insights to sift through it.
