Ep 9: Why Systems Are Better Than Goals

habits leadership systems Jun 30, 2019

Luke's Why

"A goal is an objective. We all write goals. Some goals are forced on us. Goals are necessary. But...What happens next? What happens next is you fail at reaching this goal everyday until one day to you maybe reach that goal and then you just start another. A system on the other hand is a designed set of daily habits, routines, workflows and procedures that you put in place. Having a system creates a chance to win everyday! If you ran the system today, you win!"

John's Why 

"A system gives you something to do everyday. The idea isn't to not have goals, but to have systems that help you achieve those long term goals. A chance to be successful everyday.
