The Straightforward Mechanics of Making More With Less.
“If sturdy goals are set and nearly all time is spent examining and adjusting systems toward those objectives, great outcomes will come true naturally. Conversely, consider ‘holistic’ solutions that cover the complexity of life just like a blanket: Another marketplace for the product, a more competent manager for the business, a bigger home, a fresh boss, a new spouse. These are efforts to straighten portions of life out all at one time and even though reasonable sometimes, are reverse of the continuous system improvement attempts I am talking about right here.”
“Stop searching for an instantaneous hand-of-God solution to complications. Drop the theory that existence is complicated and mystical, remove the complexity and move on to work fixing the underlying ineffective mechanisms one at a time. Looking for peace and personal control with drug use, food, work, cash, esoteric psychobabble, obsessive adherence to spiritual or political dogma, operating away, or extreme preoccupation with the external-obsession-is usually an offense to the simpleness of it all. Those are wholesale applications that falsely guarantee to smoothen up life’s complexities in a single swoop. Effortless buttons! Instead, System methodology will go inside and repair building-block parts individually. It’s about making little, mechanical system developments that accumulate as time passes to a structure created from steel. This is exactly what you want to have, instead of becoming distracted by the guarantee of some cure-all that just camouflages chronic inner inefficiency.”
“Let’s lay away the complexity and look for a way to control the mechanics of the systems which are right before us. The first actions you’ll take include establishing direction and choosing a strategy.”
