I am glad you are still here with me. I said in yesterday’s post that there will be a theme for each day of the week, and that I would be revealing each day’s theme as they come. So here it is: Tuesday will be Processes/Systems day.
But, Why do I find it important to write about this?
Processes and Systems are what relentless progress, scaling, and continuous improvement are made of. There is no way to make sustained progress through sheer pulse and effort. Heroics are great. Once. That’s why we call them heroes.
To exert real progress, it is necessary to be able to move on from what has been solved already, while we keep it going. It is necessary that if we learned to do a task well, we can demonstrate it repeating the steps methodically. It is necessary to build the skills and the abilities to perform the task with less effort every time. That’s what a professional does.
And -in today’s time- when possible, we must automate it. Let the robots take over.
Only by doing so can we elevate ourselves above the daily grind. If we know how to do this, the ratchet continues every day.
This blog has a process and a system as well, but I will save that for later.
