Protect Your Hope: A Systems Thinking Mindset

Table of Contents

Right now, you’ve got hope. You’re dreaming of how good life can be. You can do this. You can take your business from messy to organized, from bad to good, from loss to profit. It’s all there! You even have a systems thinking mindset. Yet, it feels like it’s taking FOREVER to systematize your business.

Take a moment here and protect your hope.

Implementing systems is a process.

It might take you two months to wrap your head around what needs to be done to systematize your business. Don’t focus on changing today, just start thinking today. Look at your business with fresh eyes and finally be honest with yourself. This honesty and perspective will show you what you need to do about your problems.

Systems thinking mindset

Most people understand the benefit of systems fairly quickly. Once in a while, though, someone struggles.

I once had a client who insisted on cleaning every toilet herself. She didn’t have to do that! She needed systems so her team could take over the responsibility.

It took five years of coaching to break through her resistance to building systems. She needed control and couldn’t let go. She didn’t trust systems. One day she finally broke down and couldn’t keep going anymore.

She gave the systems a chance, and everything changed. She was suddenly free. Relaxed. Her business was running better than ever. She just had to get out of her own way.

Systematizing your business will take as long as it takes.

Remember this, and you won’t lose hope. Look at your business as separate from you and treat it with respect. The faster you open your mind to the idea of working by systems instead of by manual labour, the faster you can build a business that pays you for taking time off. 

Until next time, enjoy your Entrepreneurial Journey!
