I attended a useful workshop on Systems Learning yesterday and learn the Systems parlance such as ‘balancing feedback’, ‘reinforcing feedback’ and the like. However I would like to add that a System in everyday life, like in the Engineering context, has a

a) desired set-point
b) actual output
c) disturbances
d) feedback
e) controller

Desired set-point is the goal you set for yourself, actual output is what you actually achieved. Along the way towards achieving one’s goals, one would face many challenges; these are what I called disturbances. Pursuant to one’s actual output, there would always be feedback given to us for us to constantly tweak our actions to achieve our goals. Last but not least, controllers are we ourselves and we are the controllers of our destiny! (if you are in the same camp of thought as me J )
