On National Checklist Day, tick off what you learned about the holiday, because October 30th is the perfect day! Organizational skills help out in many areas of life. In the frantic rhythm of days, it is easy to forget about the most important thing: lists will help you remember everything. Join the celebration!
National Day has its origins in the 1930s. It was at this time that the first checklist appeared. Unfortunately, this happened after the crash of a Boeing plane that claimed the lives of several people. When examining the tragedy, it turned out that the lack of one action was to blame for everything – turning off the elevator lock. The simplest omission became fatal.
It was decided to create a special sheet, where the actions needed to be performed were listed. It worked! Now, before each flight, the pilots looked at the list and understood that they definitely did not miss anything.
The checklist helps not only in the sky, but also on the ground. How many primary tasks that we can skip in our duties – lives do not always depend on them, but this is not important. Self-control is a good option for every person.
It is noteworthy that:
- in 2009, surgeon Atul Gawande wrote a book that described how much doctors and teachers need such templates;
- a checklist allows you to be successful in any business;
- when people tick off one of the items, they get some satisfaction from the work done. This is very motivating!
