Big news - I’ve started looking for a new home.
A perfect opportunity to put into practice insights from this newsletter: decision making, navigating conflict and goal setting.
The first question I started answering:
- What house? (Goal Thinking)
I started exploring houses, looking at incredible interiors and started dreaming.
Speaking with friends, I realised that this search might take so sometime. The market is hot.
So I shifted to this question:
- How will we find the house? (Systems Thinking)
From this question we built our House Hunting system (in notion):
- How will define what houses to look at?
- How will we keep track of houses we shortlist?
- How will we decide what houses to shortlist?
- And more….
I’ve also defined daily routines.
For example, I check the new properties listed every day with breakfast. I’ve scheduled time in my diary to make phone calls and follow ups.
This system has helped save time, keep us focused and make better decisions.
The power of systems.
What are your aspirations for 2022? And what system do you need to make them a reality?
