The key to success in business (and most areas of life, too, now that we're at it) is systems.
Predictable systems that deliver predictable results.
Systems for acquiring customers.
Systems for serving customers.
Systems for building products.
Systems for exercising your body.
Systems for eating healthy.
Systems for resolving conflicts.
Systems for creating systems.
The more and better systems you have in place, the more you can focus on higher-value work rather than fighting fires and reinventing the wheel over and over again.
Having a well-defined system, and following that system, equals freedom.
A lot of people don't realize that. They feel like the systems hold them down. They feel restricted.
But what it does is give you the freedom to focus your attention on the things that make a difference.
What system do you need to create next?
