How to Create A Checklist to Speed Up Tasks in 3 Easy Steps

Creating checklists can help you in your work and personal life. They take the stress out of having to rely on your memory to perform tasks, whether they are simple and repetitive or complex and stressful. There are three easy steps to creating a checklist: 1) Identify a task that is repetitive and requires you to remember multiple steps or items. 2) Write down the steps or items in a logical order, and 3) Test your list to make sure you didn’t forget anything. This removes the extra burden of having to remember all those details and makes it easy to do things fast and consistently well every time.

Key Takeaways:

  • To begin a checklist, choose a task that must be done in multiple steps but is rather monotonous at the same time.
  • Once you’ve chosen your task, simply break it down into the various steps that must be done.
  • The final step is to check your checklist to ensure you’ve remembered everything.

“Checklists take away the need to have perfect recall, so they are great to simplify repetitive tasks.”
