Systems trump goals any day of the week. Every year people write down a bunch of goals and then come February the gyms are back to just the regulars and sales of sweets have increased 5 fold to cover the guilt eating.

Goals are big and nebulous and some time in the future. We’ll look back and realize the goal was achieved. A system is now. It’s a few easy tasks broken down in to small parts and we simply send an email and check that box.

The next best part about systems is that once you have it all written down you can delegate it and the documentation is already there.
