Cre­ate effi­cien­cy to cre­ate more time to do what you love to do.

In our work with clients at MACKEY™, inten­tion forms the start­ing point for our annu­al goal-set­ting ses­sion. Inten­tion informs and struc­tures our con­ver­sa­tion about goals and keeps the team focused on what is impor­tant. We will talk more about that in lat­er chap­ters.

One of my favorite uses for inten­tion is to help me man­age my activ­i­ties and roles at work. As a busi­ness own­er, it is nat­ur­al to feel respon­si­ble for every deci­sion and every out­come. Yet the only way for you and your busi­ness to grow is for you to work “on” and not “in” your busi­ness every­day. How you make the shift from doing the work of the busi­ness to devel­op­ing sys­tems and struc­tures so the work of the busi­ness gets done requires pur­pose­ful plan­ning and action. I use the “GIRST sys­tem” to frame my work as a busi­ness own­er.

For me to stay focused, I need some­thing sim­ple, easy, and con­cise. To that end, I cre­at­ed the GIRST sys­tem for focus­ing my activ­i­ties, roles, and duties. GIRST stands for “Guide, Inten­tion, Roles, Struc­ture, and Test.”
