Stop the Chaos. Seize Control.
A message from Sam Carpenter:
Welcome! The Work The System Method is not theory or esoteric intellectual blather. It’s business and life management based on simple real-world mechanics: how the parts operate; how they fit together; how they’re sequenced. It’s going below the surface to see and then manage the processes that produce the results. There’s nothing mysterious about it. This is simply about gaining a more precise view of how the world mechanically functions….
No more long, anxious hours. No more anemic bottom line. All the right moves stem from a one-time “tweak” in how you see your world. Yes, thousands of people have found freedom by going “one layer deeper.”
The Work the System Method is the simple yet potent path to seizing control of your work and life…to creating plenty of time and money so you can relax and do what you want! Realizing a solid profit while being able to get away anytime you feel like it, spending lots of relaxed time with family and friends, retiring while you’re still young enough to enjoy it, and most importantly (because it’s at the root of any honest success), creating real value for those around you, are all possible once you internalize the “systems mindset” and start assertively managing the processes of your life.
It’s simple mechanics!
I explain this more effective way of managing business – and living life – in the third edition of my book, Work The System: The Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less which, because of a special arrangement with my publisher, I’m able to give away in PDF and audio form.

Here are some ”systems mindset” observations that I discuss in my book:
- The world is a logical collection of independent systems, not a confused mass of sights, sounds and events.
- Every result in our lives is preceded by a linear step-by-step process. In order to create the results we want, we must see and then focus on these individual processes.
- Yes, we’re ultimately interested in results. However, results are byproducts of the systems we choose to either manage or ignore.
- Leaders tend to over-think, making things too complex. It’s better to work from a simple plan that is based on a limited number of principles and threads.
- Our businesses are machines…primary systems composed of sub-systems. Yes, and so are our lives.
- We stand apart from our businesses, examining them from “outside and slightly elevated” position
- It’s 2013. The world is moving FAST. Our businesses must be resilient and powerful; able to respond quickly. We accomplish this by spending our days creating and then maintaining super-efficient business machines, not hop-scotching around the latest fad.
- Constant system improvement is our personal ”prime time.” We learn from our errors.
- We’re not fire-killers. We’re fire-prevention specialists.
- It’s easy to set up a business so front-line people want to be engaged…and management is listening. This is a “bottom-up” strategy.
- Using the proper communications tools and protocols, everyone is informed. Decisions are made quickly.
- Massive innovation in a product or service is not often possible. However, massive improvement in the mechanics of virtually any company can happen, and happen quickly. How? It starts with a simple mindset shift within the CEO. Then, this vision flows downward into the rest of leadership, into management, and then into operations….
