Disclaimer: Kindly go through the reading guide before proceeding ahead

Systematic means setting up Systems. Systems for everyday or periodic activities.The focus of it is to simplify our lives.

What it won’t do

Being Systematic won’t increase your productivity,neither will it increase your efficiency.

Some people misunderstand as it implying to increase their finances will there is no guarantee of it.

It won’t increase time in your day ie. you won’t have 24+ hours in a day. As against just 24 earlier.

Example – Collecting and depositing dividend cheques in your bank account.

What it will do

Being Systematic will reduce the inefficiencies that you encounter depending on much systematic you become.

It brings clarity. Helps identify what is necessary and what is not.

It frees up the time that would have been wasted on mundane stuff otherwise. Now what you do with that time depends on you. You use it for rejuvenating yourself,things you love doing, family time etc.

Example – Dividend is deposited directly in your bank account via standing instruction.

By now you must have decided if you wanna be systematic or not.
If YES,then proceed ahead,else do whatever you wannna do

Its very simple.

  • Begin by first deciding what all activities of your life you wanna systemize and write it down.
