Checklists – I love em.

Since my content requests have disappeared (as well as my hit traffic with each successive post), I guess it’s my turn to come up with some content. 🙂 This will be a brief post, since my kid is sick today (and probably tomorrow with the same cold).

I’m a big fan of checklists. I use them in various ways to get things done on a daily and weekly basis. I’m aware of some the online versions of checklists other professionals use, but I’m using the iPhone ‘Notes’ application.

The biggest reason for using this built-in app is the ability to search notes from my GMail interface. I don’t quite know how it works, but I can reference notes from my desktop without having to pick up my phone.

The other reason I use checklists is to just dump a LOT of to-do’s out of my head. Throughout the day, there are several tasks to take care of that either appear or morph from their previous state. Taking five minutes to jot it all down and arrange them by priority makes all the difference.

I just wonder if this such a normal thing professionals do, and if they do it better than me. One day I’ll find out.
