focus on the system, not the activity itself

#idea for personal growth. The way to generate a lasting change in your life is to set yourself up for success with a system that make the right choice the easy and appealing one.

Atomic Habits by James Clear

The goal in any sport is to finish with the best score, but it would be ridiculous to spend the whole game staring at the scoreboard. The only way to actually win is to get better each day. In the words of three-time Super Bowl winner Bill Walsh, β€œThe score takes care of itself.” The same is true for other areas of life. If you want better results, then forget about setting goals. Focus on your system instead.

  • The "score takes care of itself", and "focus on the system" are two good mantras.
