If you have ever heard a lot of young entrepreneurs spouting off about their grand visions, it can come off as a trifle pitiable when you get right down to it. After all, so many of their visions all seem to revolve around how great of a job they can do at something. To most beginning entrepreneurs, they do not have the sense to realize that their chances of success are very low, and that they may set themselves up for a lot of hard work with very few rewards. Perhaps there is just a pinch of masochism in their hearts, to get them so set onto such a difficult path as the one that lay ahead of them. In all too many cases, they do not understand, just as most employees and professionals also do not understand, that systems are not just how a great business is built, but how the world functions at its utmost potential.
Consider the systems that drive our lives every single day. After all, it is systems which keep our cars running along smoothly. If not for a massive array of different systems, your car would be nothing more than a pretty sculpture… even though it was, in turn, made by a series of different machines. And while those machines may have been run by operators in a factory somewhere, they were most definitely managed by a system, after all. Even the very act of driving is a system, when you get right down to it.
So every time you get behind the wheel, it is important to be thankful for all of the systems involved in the operation of your automobile. Not only was its very crafting the product of machinery and the systems which keep it humming along. Not only does its engine rely on systems to keep on doing what cars do best. Systems themselves are what keep your car a safe and reliable form of transportation, which keeps you from having to walk around… and what will keep you safe if the systems inside someone else’s brain ever short circuit.
