From the Author
There will be a mechanical adjustment in the way you see your world, and when this profound shift occurs, systems Methodology will make irrefutable sense, and your work and life will never be the same. I like to call this mini-awakening getting it, and I describe what it is and how to achieve it in Part One.
The Nutshell Premise? Your life is a collection of individual systems.
To whom is this book intended? It's for anyone who runs a business, from the founder of a brand new mom-and-pop start-up to the seasoned CEO of a multinational. At either extreme and in-between, the tenets apply uniformly because life's fundamental mechanics work the same, all the time, everywhere. This is about acquiring a better view of reality's universal simple mechanics; to viewing the machinations of your world with more precision.

The underlying premise, that nothing exists outside of cause and effect, is supported by his real world experience (and failings) as a business owner. That he was able to turn his thinking and entrenched habits around, and subsequently apply the paradigm shift to all aspects of his company operations, provides an excellent and authentic case study to support his experience.
His personal anecdotes, as well as practical examples, will provide you with powerful lessons and applications to identify where you can make an immediate and powerful difference in your own business.
I highly recommend this book.
In summary, create a high level vision, from this create rules, next document all of your systems and subsystems supporting these rules, then follow up with detailed working procedures that progress step-by-step in a linear fashion for each subsystem. Finally, optimize or replace theses procedures or systems until they are efficient and effective. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Work the System: The Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less
It is a simple concept but not one you necessarily think about until it's explained. Even though the author focuses on his answering service business, many of the same issues apply to any business. It is very useful to have the sample documents he includes in the book.
If your business isn't working the way you would like, give this a chance. Very reasonable price to pay for invaluable advice.
