Many people are about to cozy up to a warm fire, with a cup of latte, and begin writing their New Year’s resolutions. They set goals to lose weight, spend more time with the family, improve their golf game, or increase the sales of their small business. However, these resolutions are so rarely kept, they inspire the first wave of jokes for the New Year.
A Systems Thinker understands why most people’s good intentions go unfulfilled.
Gary Ryan Blair, author and motivational speaker, said, “Success in any endeavor does not happen by accident. Rather, it’s the result of deliberate decisions, conscious effort, and immense persistence… all directed at specific goals.”
Mr. Blair has just described a system. A system is a predetermined course of action brought about by deliberate decisions, conscious and measured effort, and persistent repetition… all directed to accomplish a specific objective.
Most people set goals, but do not put a system in place to accomplish the goal, hence, failure is imminent!
When you sit down this year to set personal or business goals, in addition to stating the goal, state the name of the system you will create to reach the goal. What is your new weight loss system, your more-family-time system, your golf improvement system, or your super-deluxe lead-generation system?
