348- Goals and Systems


Setting goals can lead to inconsistent results.

On the one hand, they’re necessary. Ambitious goals point us in an aspirational direction that others can rally around. On the other hand, they’re frustrating because every day we spend working towards our goal is another day we haven’t hit it yet.

Systems, on the other hand, are more straightforward.

Every day we follow through with a system is a success. Any day we fail to implement it is a failure.

Trying to gain a 6-pack before the end of the year is a goal. Working on your abs every day is a system.

Both goals and systems are necessary to guarantee results.
