Checklists let you take the wheel and drive.
If we feel poorly about how your business is travelling, use checklists to shift it up a gear or two, and bring your vision and objectives alive. Everything in your world is created twice first in your minds, and only second in reality.
You’re already creating your reality, every day. Whatever your problem is right now is the direct result of the thoughts you’ve been thinking. Checklists will change your thoughts, and you will then change your outlook.
As human beings, our primary two motivators are fear and desire; we all need to exercise better control. Overcoming fear and achieving your desires requires more than hard work; it requires the input checklists can give you along the way.
If nothing else the COVID-pandemic forced us to pause and reflect on our future. It has been a good thing for the people who were ready for a change. There is a lot of negativity still out there right now, but I encourage you to see the opportunities which are also present. Build a future-ready business and network by making use of checklists.
Optimise your performance and delivery for your customers by finding better ways of doing things. Fear creates the need to escape, to get away, to avoid; it isn’t interested in getting anywhere, in particular, it just wants to get away from the perceived source of the pain.
Desire meanwhile is the need to achieve and acquire what we crave. Desire is generally about achieving, gaining, possessing or feeling something specific.
The reason so many of us procrastinate is that we are trying to use fear to motivate ourselves toward what we want.
Achieve more on the first attempt with checklists.
With fewer people, you can develop your team’s capabilities and capacity when the business is under pressure. Checklists drop ‘value grenades’ around how to start and grow an advisory practice and any other type of project or organisation.
It’s time to shatter the myth of doing everything on your own. Explore how practical, easy-to-implement ideas can help develop your team, so they’re empowered to achieve your core business objectives.
Checklists which facilitate change and better communications can help you to make a more substantial impact. Learn how to set your team and the business up for success.
The problem is that as soon as we notice a little bit of progress and feel better, we tend to forget where our ideas came from in the first place, and do we go about reinventing the wheel.
If you don’t want to stay in a stressful state for very long, look for checklists which will keep everyone focused. Without checklists, we tend to procrastinate and allow the struggles to continue. Look toward what you genuinely enjoy doing, and use checklists to improve your desired outcomes.
Use checklists to expand our comfort zone.
Like cooking, it doesn’t have to be complicated, invest in receipts, tools and checklists and have more fun. If you don’t move out of your comfort zone, life becomes boring.
- You will never know what could have been possible.
- Will you be less likely to see innovative ideas and opportunities?
- You’ll never know to experience what’s possible, to make you grow.
- Find better ways of doing things.
Comfort is a drug, when you get used to it, it becomes addictive, but your comfort zone is where dreams go to die, checklists bring your dreams alive.
