You get what you repeat.James Clear
one power full note from James Clear’s book Atomic Habits is Your outcomes are a lagging measure of your habits. for example if you asking why you have ‘whatever your net worth now’? the answer is that all because your financial habits make it so. or if you mad at your self about your weight? well, your weight is a lagging measure of your eating habits. you have the control, why mad? mostly what happen with your self is a lagging measure of you habits. we need stop complaining. You get what you repeat
but instead make a goal to become better, we should focus to make a better system. why? because both loser and winner share a same goal, the different is their system. both goal are to win. it just the winner somehow have better system and actually impose themselves to do it.
The Difference Between Goals and Systems
What’s the difference between goals and systems?
- If you’re a coach, your goal is to win a championship. Your system is what your team does at practice each day.
- If you’re a writer, your goal is to write a book. Your system is the writing schedule that you follow each week.
- If you’re a runner, your goal is to run a marathon. Your system is your training schedule for the month.
- If you’re an entrepreneur, your goal is to build a million dollar business. Your system is your sales and marketing process.
so if you are a trader, and your goal is to have positive expectancy in the long term, your system is you trading and journaling system for feedback-improvement.
in others word, goals are about the results you want to achieve. and systems are about the processes that lead to those results. focus on the system!
so what are our system? trading and journaling system
trading system is our set of rule to trade, it’s the criterias for not only how we trade, what to trade and when to trade, it’s also set rule for our risk and others, this different from trading plan and trading methods. jounaling system is how we keep track to all our trades and have a feedback system to evaluate how discipline we’re following our system, methods and plan.
You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.James Clear
