Agree or disagree?
Systems are better than goals.
Why is that?
Because a goal, once accomplished, is no longer a motivating factor to keep pressing on with any given set of activities.
Plus, there's A TON of the built-in feeling of "pre-success failure".
Example: The "goal" of getting out of debt.
Huge goal. Usually a long process. Lot's of pre-success failure.
BUT what's ACTUALLY going to get you to that goal?
ANSWER: The "system" of consistent budgeting (i.e. organizing, budgeting and expense tracking).
Boring? Yes (sort of). Effective? Absolutely.
That system, developed into a consistent habit will happily walk them from debt-freedom all the way to some semblance of FI.
So the best way I've found as a coach to help people accomplish their goals is to "hack" the process and instead orient them toward systems.
Why does this work so well?

Are systems are better than goals?
NOW, in online business, an effective system looks like what we like to call the 1:1:1:1 model.
So to have a successful online business, you need:
And once you have that system set up, THEN you have a REAL business.
You won't be tossed to and fro by every new "fad" or "shiny object" that flits across your YouTube feed.
Why is this?
It's because achieving your goals (whatever they are) are going to be natural outcomes of having a solid system in place.
And if you have the right system in place, if you’re naturally, going to achieve your goals and even go well beyond them.
Why? Because you're going to be focused: daily, weekly, monthly and yearly on the INPUTS of your system and NOT on far-reaching goals that produce the the that constant feeling of pre-success failure that causes so many people to drop out of the race before they even begin.
