It’s All About Systems

Posted on May 29, 2008 @ 11:10 am

An Internet Marketing mentor of mine once said, “If there is a guarantee that people will be interested in your product, it’s calling it a system.” I’ve thought about that ever since I first heard mention this. I’m clueless when it comes to constructing a system myself.

I have a friend who can create a system for just about anything — assuming she has the time. I swear she was born with a knack for seeing to the heart of any task. I, on the other hand, am completely hopeless at breaking down a project into doable chunks. It all looks important to me and I can’t even begin to figure out where to start.

So I’ve been contemplating what the big deal is about systems. There’s our Solar System, the social security system, there are gambling systems and even RO systems – reverse osmosis water treatment. Then there computer operating systems, our own digestive system, the lymphatic system, and our endocrine system. There are systems administrators and people who say, “Don’t buck the system.” So why is it with all the systems surrounding me, I can’t create one? Probably because a system, by its very nature, is organized, and I’m missing the organizational base pair sequences in my genetic code. Guess my system needs some optimization. Transplant, anyone?
