Shortcut on iPhone Home Screen

I use EZchecklist™ on my laptop most of the time, but it sure comes in handy on my iPhone too.  However, it's a lot of poking around to open the Drive app, then go looking for my EZchecklist™ file and then open it. 

So I finally got around to adding a "shortcut" to it on my home screen.

It's much easier now! And it's easier, then I'll use it more, and if I use it more then I'll build good habits faster.

The Most Important Habit

"The most important habit is choosing the right habit to work on."

James Clear

It sounds good, but it falls short. 

In my estimation, the most important habit is to begin every day with the resolve to work on your habits, and to do that, you open your EZchecklist™ and start checking off the habits as you do them.

EZchecklist™ is "the mother of all good habits". If you start your day this way, and check in on your EZchecklist™ a couple of times during the day, and one last time before bed, you will surely build bulletproof habits quickly.

The Wisdom of Habits


You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results.

You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.

Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you want to become!

Self-control is a short-term strategy, not a long-term one.

Imagine changing just one word: You don't "have" to. You get to.

Never miss twice. If I miss one day, I try to get back into it as quickly as possible.

Until you work as hard as those you admire, don't explain away their success as luck.

The EZchecklist™ Update, March 2021

    

The EZchecklist™ Update, March 2021

"all the news that's worth checking"

Here's what happened in the past month: 

1. Smile!

The most powerful thing you can do. Costs nothing; makes everything easier. There was a time when I had to consciously practice smiling and even tracked it in my EZchecklist™ but now it is a true, unthinking, life changing habit. A highly recommended read.

2. Sleep Like Tom Brady

We can't be super athletes like 7-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Tom Brady, but we can learn a thing or two from him. Sleep, for instance. It's the foundation of having a great day.

3. Integrated To Do List

EZchecklist™ is not a common To Do List, but it seems to want to have an integrated To Do list. See how this can work for you to simplify your life and get more "stuff" done.

4. Chatter

That voice in your head is normal, until it isn't, and then it gets in the way of moving on with your life. That's what this book is about. Read my take, and my experiences, with the chatter going on upstairs.

5. Subscribe!

Why wait? Get all the yummy goodness fro the EZchecklist™ blog as it happens. Check out the Subscribe box in the top right hand column of the site. Free. No spam. Private. Easy.

Chatter: that voice in your head

 

May be an image of book and text that says 'Chatter The Voice in Our Head, Whylt Matters, and How to Harness It Ethan Kross "This bookis goingto fundamentally change some of the most important conve rsations your life- the -Adam Grant, bestselling author of GIVE AND TAKE'

You're not alone...

You know that voice in your head, the one that keeps asking what if questions and doesn't give you a moment's peace, especially when you're trying to get some sleep or do some real work or just trying to relax... you know, like all the time!
This book is about that voice, and some real research that has been done and what it tells us that we can do about it, and even make it work for you instead of holding you back, causing anxiety, lack of confidence, etc.
I found this book by accident; it's not something I would normally read. But I was drawn in by the writer's conversational style.
There was a time in my life when the voice in my head was just as described, and I was spiraling downward, finally ending in divorce, bankruptcy, and cancer. That was a time of some serious chatter going on.
I knew that my survival depended on ending the habitual negative thinking. I escaped that negative voice in my head and started back on the road to success. Some of the things I did are mentioned in the book, so I can validate a lot of it. Additional techniques are mentioned, based on new research.
If you have been wishing that voice in your head would just shut up and play something more productive, then this book is for you.

Integrated To Do List




EZchecklist™ was intended to be much more than a simple To Do List. It was intended to be more of a To Be checklist. That is, if we simply listed the behaviors of the person we want to be, and then we focused on doing those things, we would succeed wildly.

However, there's still the real world of stuff we have To Do, and they never really found a way to be included in EZchecklist™.  

So, in the latest experiment to recognize the need for a To Do list, check out how it's integrated at the end of the Take Action section. Notice that To Do items are not scored, just listed as the background noise of real life. There is no reward for doing the mundane stuff of life.

You can add this feature yourself by inserting a row below the last activity in your Take Action section. You can list all the To Do items in the one cell and double click to open the list, or create separate rows for each To Do item and make all of them a Group. The second approach will work better when using EZchecklist™ on your phone.

How are you keeping your To Do List now?
