From the Author:

Work the System's  main thrust goes beyond providing new information, although it does that. The root purpose of Work the System is to guide you to a new way of perceiving your life so you can gain better command of it and therefore be better able to get what you want.  There will be a mechanical adjustment in the way you see your world, and  when this profound shift occurs, systems Methodology will make irrefutable  sense, and your work and life will never be the same. I like to call this  mini-awakening getting it, and I describe what it is and how to achieve it in Part One. The Nutshell Premise? Your life is a collection of individual systems. To whom is this book intended? It's for anyone who runs a business, from the founder of a brand new mom-and-pop start-up to the seasoned CEO of a multinational. At either extreme and in-between, the tenets apply uniformly because life's fundamental mechanics work the same, all the time, everywhere. This is about acquiring a better view of reality's universal simple mechanics; to viewing the machinations of your world with more precision.

From the Inside Flap:

After a fifteen-year nightmare operating his own stagnant business, Sam Carpenter developed a down-to-earth methodology that knocked his routine eighty-hour workweek down to just two hours--while multiplying his income twenty-fold. In Work the System, Carpenter reveals a profound insight and the exact uncomplicated, mechanical steps he took to turn his business and life around without turning it upside down. Once you "get" this new vision, success and serenity will come quickly. You will learn to: * Make a simple perception adjustment that will change your life forever. * See your world as a logical collection of linear systems that you can control. * Manage the systems that produce results in your business and your life. * Stop fire-killing. Become a fi re-control specialist! * Maximize profit, create client loyalty, and develop enthusiastic employees who respect you. * Identify insidious "errors of omission." * Maximize your biological and mechanical "prime time" so that you are working at optimum efficiency. * Design the life you want--and then, in the real world, quickly create it! You can keep doing what you have always done, and continue getting mediocre, unsatisfactory results. Or you can find the peace and freedom you've always wanted by transforming your business or corporate department into a finely tuned machine.
