22-287 System

Today’s Mandala

“Systems thinking is a discipline
for seeing wholes.
It is a framework
for seeing interrelationships
rather than things,
for seeing ‘patterns of change’
rather than static ‘snapshots.’”

— Peter Senge

“Your systems are perfectly designed
to get the results that you are getting.”

— Stephen R. Covey

“All things appear and disappear
because of the concurrence
of causes and conditions.
Nothing ever exists entirely alone;
everything is in relation
to everything else.”

— The Buddha

Today’s MotD encourages us to check in with the systems (habits) we currently have in place. Are they supporting us or hindering us? Are there areas in our lives where we could use a supportive system? Are there places where we have too many? Positive systems are meant to support us, motivate us, and make things easier for us. Negative systems keep us locked into behaviors that look more like self sabotage. And a lack of any system, makes for a lot of being in default mode or a constant state of random.

Our challenge becomes examining what works for us, what works against us, and what’s basically useless to us. Keep in mind that systems that work for others may not be a good fit for us, which is why we need to personalize them for our own needs. It could be that a random system is better in certain areas, and a stricter one is better in other areas. It’s up to us to decide and implement.
