During a trip to Chicago, way way back in the first decade of the twentieth century, Henry Ford visited some meat-packing houses in Chicago. And he remembered a grain mill conveyor belt from another visit. And so he took some meat and grain and made the first Model T. Just kidding (as if you didn’t already know that). No, actually Mr. Ford’s observations helped him figure out a way to save energy when it came to building cars.
Turns out you can save energy when you don’t move around so much.
Wow. Is that a complex concept or what?!
Well, it’s really a simple concept. But not one that anyone had applied to building cars, up to that point. And Henry Ford wanted to build more cars so more Americans could drive them. But he needed a system to help him do that faster and more efficiently.
So, Mr. Ford figured if he could bring the work to the workers, he could save them (and his business) energy AND money. Because they’d spend less time moving around looking for parts and tools. Then, he took it steps further. Literally. By breaking down the assembly of his Model T into 84 individual steps.
And each assembly line worker specialized in one of those steps.
Brilliant. And simple.
Put that simple brilliance to work for you.
Do you have a proven system in place to be sure your business isn’t leaking energy? Because any place you can save energy is a place where you can potentially make more money and have more freedom.
Notice I said “simple?” Because it’s not easy to give up your status quo (aka bad habits), even if they work against you. I know. I’ve been there, too. But if you’d rather make more money, have more time, and enjoy more freedom, you gotta take the necessary steps to get you there.
I know this 4th Quarter can be hectic time of year, with Thanksgiving and Christmas and all the extra things that pop up. But this time of year is the perfect example of why I always emphasize the vital importance of building your System.
But I also let you know you don’t have to start from scratch. Why would you do that when you can plug your business into a proven System? The RondaReady System.
It’s not inexpensive. But it won’t end up costing you a dime, if you’re a go-getter. Because go-getters understand how to buy something and get their increased sales and profits to pay for it. If that’s sounds like you, then your System link is below.
