Systems Thinker

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“How would you deal with the habit of compulsively buying books?”

Create a beautiful system, and beautifully integrate it with other life-systems.

For instance:

Make it a practice to notice the impulse when it arises. (Observation system)
Make it a practice to ask yourself why did the impulse arise. (Introspection system)
Make it a practice to delay the buying decision. (Discipline system)

Make it a rule to not exceed a certain budget for books every month.
Make it a rule to not exceed a certain number of books every month.
Make it a rule that, once you buy a book, you must read it the same month.
…”

“Do I notice a system for creating systems?”

“It’s a work in progress.”
