“Goals are for losers” pg. 3, How to Fail at Almost Everything and still Win Big
“Systems are for winners.” pg. 226
” For our purposes, let’s say a goal is a specific objective that you either achieve or don’t sometime in the future. A system is something you do on a regular basis that increases your odds for happiness in the long run. If you do something everyday, it’s a system. If you’re waiting to achieve it someday in the future, its a goal.” pg. 35
I am very intrigued by Scott Adams’ philosophy about goals.
Environment dictates a lot of behavior,(put a link in here Ed) and I think that systems can serve as a type of environment for decision making, the algorithmic infrastructure for what to do when with the input of time.
In this space I am going to try and start to articulate my systems, and change them to get more towards better systems for my life.
