One of the lessons I learnt lately is the need to have systems.
Books, podcasts and interviews seem to all talk about the idea of systems being supreme. 

A few folks here on 200 words have also written about systems. 

I am sold on the idea. Yes systems are good. 

My question is - HOW
How to you create a system?

These are the main areas that I suspect a lot of us want to have systems for:

1) Health
What is a good system around health?

After starting project food as fuel, I have started looking at different recipes that I can incorporate into the health goals I have. But I am far from having a system. 

2) Wealth
What's a good system that can take care of me, my diabetes and my family around me? I am fascinated with Jason's progress here and I have been stalking him for details. System worth gems exist there. 

3) Wisdom
What's a good system for life long learning, improving, reflecting and experiencing? 
I think I am making progress with this one more than the first two but there is so much more to learn and improve. 

If you have a system that you created - please share.

    @keni nice post! Love the perspective on creating systems for health, wealth and wisdom. Much food for thought for myself.. For health, I recently came to realise that I need a system to prepare habits for 10 years ahead, because my health habits are always 10 years behind my actual health/age (habits die hard).

    @keni Are thinking a collection of habits or something more beyond that to define a system?

      @brandonwilson - Yes systems would be a collection of habits or tasks (mostly automated) that you do routinely towards achieving a goal.
      For instance - I bet you have a sleep system which may include:
      - Avoid caffeine past a certain time
      - Stop eating 3 hours before bed
      - Get a good mattress
      - Keep the temperature low
      - Take a warm bath before bed
      - Sleep at a specific time all week..

      So unlike a goal, systems are created to improve lifestyle and will not cease after something is achieved.

      @keni Remember there's no "set it and forget it" at least that I have found.
