What to systematise?

Building on from my last week’s blog post, I think this wraps up why establishing successful habits could eventually lead to an automatic system.

  1. Things we tend to systematise in our life:
    1. Paying bills
    2. Working and studying procedure
    3. Sleeping pattern
    4. Following dietary or exercise program
    5. Daily planning

I can probably add a lot more to this list. However, by automating the boring stuff we free ourselves to focus on work that’s truly important to us.

Recommendation to help implement systems in your life:

  • Creating a list of most important tasks and carry them out in a single day (batching)
  • Track your habits – often now a lot of apps have been developed to implement such tracking systems such as Habitica.
  • Setup a morning routine system – a system that provides that essential win for the day.
  • Setup a night routine system
  • Putting all your appointments on the calendar
  • Plan your meals for the week
  • store your digital information on (Notion)
  • Automate your bills, credit card payments, savings

This basic idea of systematising doesn’t need to be overly complicated. When implementing a new system which has been optimised through trial and error – look to find another area to systematise. So if you guys have your boring fundamentals set up as system share in the comments below. I would very much like to learn anything new that I can use to hone my currents systems.
