​Set the system up so you always win

Goals have an end point.

They’re good for some things but not good when your happiness or self-worth is tied to them.

Systems are an alternative.

Losing 10kg is a goal.

Staying healthy and being active, sleeping and eating well every day is a system.

A specific dream job is a goal. A system is continually improving your skill set and your ability to communicate those skills in the direction of your field of interest.

Once you set up your system and stick to it, you may even end up at your goal. If not, the worst case is you stuck to your system.

And once you start to think about creating systems where you can always win, you’ll see them every where.
