4-Reasons You should Love Systems
Some people don’t think of themselves as “Systems” people. But we all are, and honestly, the sooner you recognize it, and embrace it, the better off you will be. Here’s why…
1- God Created Systems
2- God Uses Systems
3- We can Create Systems
4- We can Use Systems
Recently my wife and I needed to make a “very fast” grocery run to cook dinner for some friends. We hit the front door…Systemless!
We thought we could split up and get everything we needed. Ha! What a joke that was. We ended up going down the same isles over and over, like as many as six times! We spent more time and money…why? We went in system-less.
Well, that’s not really the truth. You see, we are all on a system, we all use systems! It’s just that some systems are better than others, some have been thought through more thoroughly and produce a better result.
What you see right now in every area of your life is a result of some type of system. So if there is something you don’t like, ask yourself a few questions:
What’s the result I see that I’m not satisfied with? (i.e., I’m 20 lbs over weight)
What system has caused this condition? (Stress, overeating, lack ofÂ exercise, poorÂ nutrition)
What newÂ systemÂ needs to be in place? (Gym 3x/wk, accountability in my eating, work less)
Am I willing to committed to the new system, or become satisfied with what I have?
If I commit to a new system, how will I measure its success? (Lbs lost/week)
If the expected result does not occur, what part of the system will I change first?
