Improve the World—One System at a Time.
This crazy, mixed-up world is actually made up of interrelated and interdependent systems. Our success at anything—family, business, or personal pursuits—comes in understanding and managing their underlying systems. Only by applying the principles, laws and best practices that govern results, are we able to elevate the systems that improve our world, our work, and our families.
Have you ever realized that everything you and I do is part of one system or another—whether we recognize it or not! Family systems help us to earn money, manage the household, teach children, and accomplish personal goals. Business systems are created to find customers, make products, perform services, collect money, and so forth.
Your cell phone is a system. Your golf swing is a system. Your job is a system. You depend on the postal system, the highway system and your immune system. Everything is a system!
Some of our systems are well planned and efficiently accomplish their objectives; others are haphazard, seat-of-the-pants solutions that cause all sorts or problems and disappointments. Simply put, if you understand the principles for creating good systems, you have the power to accomplish anything; you can consistently get the results you desire in any endeavor. And truthfully, there is no other way!
The purpose of this blog is to improve the world, one system at a time. Pretty ambitious, I know. But if not us, who? If not now, when? In this blog, we'll talk about everyday problems, with emphasis on business operations. We'll discuss how a "Systems Thinker" goes about making a better world, and making money along the way. Come join me. Your experience and insights are invaluable to our discussion.
