Shift Your Focus From Being

Time is a funny asset.  Usually, people forget about it.  Some because they are too busy to bother.  To focused on achieving.  Conversely, others want what is no longer there.

Time slips between our fingers finer than sand in the hourglass.   We all are allotted ‘our time”.  When that time is over what then is there?  A beautiful place from which sometimes we get a second chance.

Ideas behind creating a check list

Working with other people brings about its challenges. Working with your own “self” brings out gaps in certain fields. When people allow their perceived limitations to get in the way, they effective are allowing a ‘slow down progression forward.’

Over the last few days, the new theme was taking shape. This was exciting as I was finally ‘doing it’. Things were coming together nicely. Interaction among several interruptions occurred. Instead of a meltdown confusion lingered. The next morning a brainwave. Why not compare the steps of one website to the basics of an original, not touched site?

Switching from one Webpage to another was fine for the first few minutes. Until an awareness of what if I get disturbed entered. The result is a tediously created checklist is now typed.

Where did this idea come from? My sponsor. Ages ago this is what was recommended to do. And sometimes I did and other times! However, this basic model checklist has already proven its worth. The site I was getting confused on was logged out of. That temptation to view, compare and ‘tinker with’ was removed.

What has changed is the understanding that to achieve the needed outcome from any one ‘job’ the focus needs to be there. Along with a ‘checklist guideline’. One that you understand and has a definite meaning, with a planned outcome, and a period. With reviews included.

That meant to me in the early stages of learning how to use checklists this process meant chopping and changed with little focus.

As time progressed having a checklist means that instead of concentrating on something for a week and getting into overload or ignore it stages the normal life may progress. One tick of the checklist off at a time. Yes, a slower way towards immediate progress.

The positive includes the fact of writing a post that you are now reading.

Changes in overall mindset come in many forms. Small incremental footsteps measured both for qualitative and quantitive progression towards the end objective.

In a community dynamic, it also helps people know where and when they can take over an activity. Having a screen shared document enables a group of people to add to the overall progression. A tick the box with a name of who now has the responsibility objectively allows for one contact point. One person that everyone goes through until that process has been completed. Place forward for review.
And slowly the brain starts to clear as closer the end results are seen to be near.

Hope this helps you to work with a checklist

 

Sincerely
