It’s Not Your Fault!

“94% of all failure is a result of the system, not the people.”

-W. Edwards Deming

Good news! You just need some good systems in place. Remember: SYSTEM=SaveYouSpaceTimeEnergyMoney.

What is a system? It is the best, simplest, most efficient way to accomplish a repetitive task, so that you don’t even have to think about it anymore. The thinking is done on the front end, when you create the system.

You probably already have some systems in place, such as your morning routine, getting up, showered and dressed; making your breakfast; finding your silverware and dishes; your exercise routine; the route you take to work, etc.

So if there’s a problem, you can look at what’s going on and tweak it to get the result you want. Remember, it’s probably not you–what’s needed is just a better system!
