I'm obsessed with looking under the hood of other people's systems.
No matter how good my system is, how happy I am with it, or how well it is running I'll always jump at the chance to see how somebody else is doing something. This used to lead me into spending days re-arranging my whole system or switching tools.
It's easy to slip into the mindset that if you had that system or process you would be just as organised, prolific, successful [insert outcome here] as that person . But take it from me, that is rarely the case.
Instead, we squeeze ourselves into someone else's way of working and we become miserable or worse yet... give up.
So how do you stop yourself from reworking your system every weekend? You ruthlessly apply filters to any new system you let in. These are some of mine:
Get clear on your system, try things out and then create filters so you're not constantly starting again every week with a new system.
