The greatest success story in restaurant history is Ray Kroc. He was a milkshake mixer salesman who, in 1954, visited a small chain of restaurants in California owned by two brothers named McDonald. He liked the way the McDonald’s had built their business using a system of assembly lines to quickly prepare a limited menu of inexpensive items.
Ray eventually bought the rights to the McDonalds hamburger system and created a new franchising system that became the world’s largest restaurant chain. Ray Kroc’s mastery of system creation make him a very wealthy man.
System creation is a very powerful tool because systems define results. God designed nature to operate in systems. Your body is a system of systems working in harmony to sustain life.
But when it comes to organizing their day, some Christians resist using a system, claiming they will “Just let God lead them.” What they forget is that God generally works in systematic ways to show us how to best redeem the time.
