“Success isn’t about achieving goals, it’s about forming systems.”
People tend to focus on short term goals, like creating and marketing a successful new product.
If such goals can’t be attained within a given time frame, people tend to give up, decide that they are not cut out to be entrepreneurs and go back to their mundane office jobs.
This is a huge mistake. Instead, focus on a skill or relationship that you want to develop over time and forget any specific goals.
“Losers have goals. Winners have systems.” – Scott Adams
