Do You Put Your Checklists To Work For You?
Create a checklist for the work you do by listing your steps from beginning to end. Then use the checklist to keep track of where you are and what you will do next.
Even Santa has a list. Make your list and check it twice.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Organize Color: Minimize Mistakes by Following Checklists.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- If you're not following a checklist, what are you following?
- Sure it takes discipline to follow a list; but what does it take to fix a mistake?
- Which areas of your life will you make more efficient and effective by creating checklists?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
A high commitment (8B rated 8 or better) suggests you avoid last-minute surprises and rarely repeat the same mistake twice. While it takes a discipline to complete each checklist, you've learned that it can be the perfect tool to keep you away from embarrassing and costly situations. By using a checklist, you rarely reach an important event without having exactly what you need close at hand. This simple skill saves you time and steps on everything from closing complex business deals -- to throwing big dinner parties.
A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who believes it's easier to just "wing it" than live your life by any list. You may think of yourself as a big-picture kind of person -- too creative to write down a list of the steps (and stuff) needed to complete important projects. Maybe you are a little over-confident because you routinely perform the task at hand -- so you don't feel the need to check a list before proceeding. But like a pilot who doesn't "bother" with a take-off check list -- sooner or later -- you crash and burn.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 8B more frequently?
You have more power. With a checklist in hand, you get it done right the first time -- every time.
You accumulate performance positives like "Thorough, Methodical and Conscientious" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 8B?
You have less power. You can make huge, stupid mistakes when you don't follow short, simple checklists.
Negatives like "Careless, Haphazard and Forgetful" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
