When I journal I write down 2-3 current problems in my business.

One thing I’m working on is changing my internal reaction to these problems.

I want to change from asking:

“How do I get this problem off my plate?”

…to asking the much better question…

“What’s the system for that?”

In other words, I don’t want a one-time solution – which usually involves me doing more work and isn’t scalable or sustainable.

I want a system that solves the problem.

A system that gets easier the more it’s executed.

A system that’s sustainable and scalable.

A system that leverages my time, energy and effort.

Even if it’s something I have to do entirely myself, it’s still helpful to ask the question, “What’s the system for that?”

It puts me in a different mode of creativity because I’m looking for a different kind of solution.
