Step 2… of “Systematizing” your business.


Figuring out what to “Systematize” is the 2nd step.

For most of us, there are dozens of similar repetitive tasks, large and small, in our businesses or jobs that could be systematized. To identify where you can apply systems, step back from your business and try to look at it objectively.

Start the 2nd step, ask yourself this question: Where are your frustrations?

This is the most important test for two reasons. First, you are more likely to be frustrated if you are redoing tasks that bring no particular satisfaction. Second, you are going to be frustrated if you have to relearn a task or “recreate the wheel” every time a specific need comes up.

Strategically focusing on your business this way is more likely to spot high-value opportunities for systematization.
