In Scott Adams’ book “How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big”, he posits that systems are more beneficial than goals. Whereas goals are fixed objectives that can sometimes obstruct our view of better opportunities, systems focus on continuous improvement through regular actions. Adams illustrates this distinction by noting that while losing 20 pounds is a goal, maintaining a healthy diet is a system. While goals can be useful in predictable and narrow pursuits, they may not be suitable for long-term endeavours such as career growth, especially in our rapidly changing world. Emphasising on systems can lead to skill development, thereby enhancing chances of spotting opportunities and increasing the likelihood of success.
