I love systems. I just love them!
Having a system for anything you do takes the guess work away which save time, stress, energy, money, you name it!
Think about when you clean up after dinner. I bet you have a system. Everything goes off the table and into the kitchen. You put away things in the fridge. Then you clean off the plates/silverware and in to the dishwasher they go. If it’s full you start the dishwasher, wipe off the table and counter, and you’re out of there!
That’s a system. You probably do it the same every single time. No guesswork.
What about at the office? Do you have systems for?
- Handling e-mail
- Phone messages
- When someone purchases a product
- Prospective clients
- Client follow-up
- Speaking prospects
Yes? No? If you do, fantastic. If you don’t, take special care when you are working to document how you do things. This document becomes your system and you can replicate it over and over. This also makes a great checklist so nothing falls through the cracks.
