Why Systems?

400x350_badgeI’ve been asked many times – “Why systems?”

The truth is, that’s not a simple answer for me.

Have you ever forgotten to pay a bill, return a book, or send a Birthday card?

I’ve felt the anger of late fees on bills and overdue books and the embarrassment of forgetting special occasions.

Now, I have systems!

Is meal time at your home sheer madness because you eat the same thing OVER and OVER and OVER and when you do decide to make something different, you don’t have all ingredients?

At our house it looked like this – “Pizza, again? Or would you prefer Hamburger Helper?” I was a miserable cook, didn’t make time to learn, and always made meals at the last minute, but never had the supplies on hand to create something my family would both enjoy and gain nutrition from. 

Now, I have systems!

How about mornings? Does everyone rush around unsure of where shoes, backpacks, lunches, and jackets are?

There used to be more tantrums in our house between 6:30 AM and 7:30 AM than at nearly any other time of day. 

Now, I have systems!

Are you a business owner and you spend part of your day or week trying to figure out what you are supposed to next?

I’ve been a business owner for over two decades and for the first 17 years, it seemed, I would spend the first 7-10 days of the month figuring out what I was supposed to do with the rest of the month. The month would be half way over before I would really bite into to it!

Now, I have systems!

more lifeI could go on and on giving you “before and after” scenarios of my life without systems, but I think you get the point, that my life was a little lacking, BS (Before Systems). NOW that I HAVE SYSTEMS, I have MORE – more time, more fun, more wholeness, more health, more money, and I truly enjoy this life of mine and so does my family.

So what exactly do I mean by SYSTEMS?

Let me first start with Wiki’s definition:

SYSTEM – A set of interacting or interdependent components forming an integrated whole.

My definition:

SYSTEM – Things that work together in such a way that the outcome allows for life and business to ROCK!

In the coming weeks and months, we’re going to be discovering/creating, implementing, and fine-tuning more systems in every area of life and business so that we can all enjoy the wonderful “MORE LIFE”!
