Some people hate checklists, and some are list fanatics. Most of us fall in between those extremes & can benefit from using a checklist. When I’m having houseguests I make several lists & keep them on my handy-dandy clipboard. That clipboard helps me keep menus straight, know what events/activities are planned, and when various people need to be picked up from the airport, etc. As long as I know where my clipboard is I’m fine. lol
Here is a review of a book, The Checklist Manifesto with more ideas on why/how checklists will help you accomplish you goals. We all can use a little help in that department, IMHO.
