Back to basics

We overlook the most basic of systems like a “check list.” I know…I know you’re thinking “we all KNOW about a checklist, but let me be the first to tell you that “Everybody already knows that,” is very different from “Everybody does that.” Just because a solution is known, doesn’t mean it’s done.

I feel like the internet has opened us up to always looking for a new way to do something. A lot of times we ignore old solutions to problems, even if they’re the best thing for us, because we feel like we’ve already tried it. Just think about it, how many times have you found yourself Googling how to do something that you may have done before, but not consistently? Hate to burst your Google expert bubble, but progress typically hides behind boring solutions. You don’t need a new strategy. You need to do more of what works.

How many of us efficiently use a checklist when it comes to completing a task? How many of us CONSISTENTLY write down small action items and check them off until the entire goal is met? We assume that new systems are needed if we want to make real progress, but the truth is, you just need to use what you already have….Consistently.

Checking off a check list is probably the best productivity system you can ever use. Try it out and let me know how it goes!
