Importance of Checklist
While we are busy doing our work, we sometimes forget the importance of having a checklist in place for various scenarios. I was no stranger to this. It’s only after I read “Getting Things Done” by David Allen few years back, did I realize the importance of having checklist. I learnt how it can benefit me immensely. In case you haven’t read it, I suggest you grab a copy of it on Amazon/Flipkart or Audible.
Benefits of Checklist
Checklist helps us to complete the task faster and in a methodical manner. Perhaps the most important part of having a checklist is that we don’t forget the crucial checks / items . Sometimes we slip these checks while we are busy focussing on other aspects of our work.
For our Web Development, Social Media & SEO projects we have created a detailed checklist for different scenarios. We ensure that is is “checked” before the project is completed and handed over to the client. Our website development checklist consists of more than 60+ checkpoints. A sample checklist can be found here. We try to ensure that we are thorough in our work and don’t miss out any important steps while executing our projects.
Checklist is Work In Progress
Also its important to note a checklist though once created, need not be static.Our checklist for various services have changed over a period of time.Many items have been removed and added to ensure that we are not missing anything and stay current to new developments in our field.
Tools For Making Checklist
You can also create your own checklist. Tools like Trello, Asana can help you setup your checklist. Try making your checklist, in case you haven’t made it till now. Drop me an email in case it helps you in an way.
