Having a System Makes Life Better…

 

 

I once hated to fly Southwest Air

 

I called it the “cattle call”…

 

I loved the energy of the company…the way they treat employees…their ability to remain profitable in a challenging market…

 

…but I hated flying them.  I always seemed to end up stuck in the middle seat behind two really big guys…

I would choose another airline whenever I could…

 

But then I learned their system….

 

Once I learned the system, and developed my own strategy for traveling within the Southwest system, I was able to check-in early online, get a good number in which to board the plane, and find a good seat….

 

Having a system helped me love Southwest…

 

Now I actually choose Southwest over other airlines anytime I can…

That story illustrates an important principle in life and leadership…

 

Sometimes that which you dread doing or hate the most, just needs a plan…a better system…

 

Develop or learn the system and it will make life easier and you’ll better enjoy a more successful ride…

 

What in your life needs a better system for the new year?
