When you solve problems at the results level, you only solve them temporarily. In order to improve for good, you need to solve problems at the systems level. Fix the inputs and the outputs will fix themselves. ~ Clear, James. Atomic Habits (p. 25). Penguin Publishing Group. Kindle Edition.
A goal, a result, is a once-and-done aim.
You reach it, a notch in a belt…
or you fail to reach it, walk away.
But you can choose to work hard
on improving your skills needed for the result,
and the system you build leads toward desired results,
and in the process reaches new goals, better results,
to make a life you want but, chasing results,
never expected, beyond imagination.
Fix the inputs and the outputs will fix themselves.
