This was a quick recording I made of something that’s been on my mind lately. It’s the concept of creating small habits that function like “rules to live by” or “personal standard operating procedures” that can guide me and keep me from making mistakes that I might otherwise make.
I’m experimenting with audio/podcasting and exploring the idea of starting a podcast at some point. Trying out a tool called Anchor for podcasting has been an enjoyable experience.
I talk about two things here:
- Sales follow-ups for our web design agency
- Talking on the phone while driving
But the concept is simply to create a rule that prevents me from being tempted to do something that might cause me trouble.
In business we create repeatable systems to handle projects. These systems help ensure that important things aren’t forgotten during the project.
I call these personal systems that I create: Micro Systems.
Have a listen and let me know what you think.
