The system is about the process that finally leads to the achievement of the goal. If the system is good, success is inevitable. The difference between successful and not successful people are not the type of goals they set. They both set the same goals. Yet, some of them become successful and others do not. The difference is the system. Can you be successful without setting goals but with a good system? Yes, you can.
Design a system that will get you to where you want to be.
Goals are good to set direction. The system is what will get you there.
Make the system motivate you and give you happiness.
The feeling you get when you achieve a goal is only momentary. However, if you focus on the system instead, you will enjoy the entire process.
