Jonathan Stewart:

A system works well when all the components are working together.

Jonathan Stewart:

When they all fit together in a way that fits the purpose of the system.

Jonathan Stewart:

However often what I notice, when I start working with

Jonathan Stewart:

clients, is that the components of their systems aren't talking.

Jonathan Stewart:

And are being ignored.

Jonathan Stewart:

In particularly the most important component.

Jonathan Stewart:

You.

Jonathan Stewart:

You are part of the system that you created and often when you take on

Jonathan Stewart:

other people's advice, especially as is common when running a business.

Jonathan Stewart:

You're only taking a half of their system.

Jonathan Stewart:

You're missing the environment that the system they're using is in they

Jonathan Stewart:

probably have other pieces that allow them to work in this way.

Jonathan Stewart:

actually don't, even if you are in the same industry, you do similar

Jonathan Stewart:

things, then it's incredibly hard.

interaction on the work as well.

Jonathan Stewart:

The pieces of your system should work with each other and you

Jonathan Stewart:

are a piece of that system.

Jonathan Stewart:

It's super important to get clear on what you want.

Jonathan Stewart:

As well as what you actually have the realities of the

Jonathan Stewart:

environment that you are in.

Jonathan Stewart:

We are bombarded every single day with ideas on what systems, tools, and apps

Jonathan Stewart:

we're supposed to use, but it really does lack the context and nuance

Jonathan Stewart:

and doesn't have the most important component to help things work together.

Jonathan Stewart:

When in doubt, always start from you.

Jonathan Stewart:

If you don't want to go along, I'm launching a six month program to help

Jonathan Stewart:

you figure out how to start from you.
