Redefining Systems | Neurospicy Sessions

In this episode, I redefine what a system is and explain why it matters when starting from you. A system is a bunch of components or parts of a system that come together to do something. As a key component of a system, you gotta make sure that all the parts of you are supported! If the pieces don't fit together… your system can easily break down!

Jonathan Stewart:

I speak a lot about systems when I talk to people. and it's a really popular topic for business owners who want to scale, but what actually is a system, although there are multiple definitions of systems. The common one that I see, especially in the business world is a series of apps you use to do a thing. This is close. And isn't wrong, but it is a little bit of an over-simplification and lacks a ton of nuance. So I want to bring that nuance back by redefining what a system is. A system is a bunch of components or things that come together to do something. A component can be anything from an application you use to another system entirely and systems aren't just for business stuff. One of the greatest components or pieces of my system is my Kettle, that boils in less than 60 seconds. That allows me to make sure I stay hydrated whenever I'm recording podcast episodes or working, because otherwise I will forget. The business you run going back, there is a system in itself. It has a bunch of dynamic interacting components that come together to create a business. This includes your clients, your audience, your team, your marketing, and a multitude of other things. A system only works well when all the components are working together, when all the components fit together in a way that serves the purpose of the system. Why does that matter when starting from you? It matters because you are a system and you are also a component of a bigger system. The purpose of a system can change and evolve as components are added or removed, for example, a new team member arrives or someone leaves, but there is always one component that doesn't really change and that's you, you are a key component of the system and all of the pieces need to work together to support the purpose that you define. We are bombarded by hundreds of things every day, setting up a system that fits your needs is super important but it's even more important that you don't forget one of the key components of your system. You. Want to learn how to create a system that's built around the most important component. Reach out to me at sfy
