We're going to go down the rabbit hole of having systems. Every single reader has one. Whether they're a dowser, tarot card reader, crystal ball seer, etc; they ALWAYS have one system or another.
Why is that?
People want it. Simple as that, but there's more to it.
Which is more attractive to you?
"Use our proven 4 Step System of Total Life Transformation" vs "Here's some stuff to do to make changes."
System > Stuff any day.
It's the coach's equivalent to the Authority Placebo Effect. If it was just something you were making up it won't be nearly as powerful as a SYSTEM.
EVEN IF YOU MADE UP THE SYSTEM.
All code words for "this is our [completely] made up system."
Blame the system when something goes wrong! The reader isn't wrong; they're just telling you what the system is telling THEM. "Look man, I'm not saying you'll die alone, the SYSTEM is."
It's the perfect con. The system builds trust before you buy into it, and it preserves trust even when things go wrong.
That's the sinister application. But how can it help you, the ethical entrepreneur?
Have systems in place for the most common experiences your employees run into.
That was the system and it worked. Sometimes there would be problems too big for it, but man it's powerful knowing how it works.
People will pay you tons for a system and peanuts for "whatever it is that you seem to do."
