The EZchecklist™ Update
"all the news that's worth checking"
I've been busy making some powerful improvements to EZchecklist™, and here are a few of my favorites. Click the links for more information, or schedule a zoom/hangout meeting to learn how these can work for you.
Everything you love about EZchecklist™ Pro, but less.
Distilled and available with a double click. When I started on this checklist adventure I did a good bit of research on the activities that successful people say they habitually do. The theory is that what we do is what creates our success, or lack of it. If we do what successful people do, then there is a better than average chance that we will enjoy the same results. Simple.
My favorite way to view the checklist on laptop. I have a need to see the checklist "Today" column centered in my browser window instead of all scrunched over to the left. It's easy enough to do: just drag the right side of column A to the right so Today is in the middle. Bingo! Click the link for a screen shot.
It may seem obvious, but unless it's written down, there is a lack of clarity that can slow even the most focused of us. The first thing to do every day, at least once a day, is to rededicate ourselves to the Purpose for the things we will be doing. This gives extra power to our Actions. This feature is available in Version 12.6 but is easily retrofitted to previous versions. Click the link for more info. Call for help.
Some activities are more important than others, so you might want to give yourself a bonus for doing that particular activity, and have it show up in the daily Score. It's easy to customize how you keep score.
6. What can I do for you?
Have you been thinking of ways to make your checklist better, easier to use, more powerful... Me too. Email me: mm@DBLM.com or schedule a phone meeting.
The story of the first checklist. It seems like such a simple thing, so obvious, and yet so essential. Where did checklists come from? It was a matter of life and death.
You're probably very familiar with the first block of activities under the heading "Prepare Well" but now we've added that little (more) indicating that if you double click that cell, you'll be presented with a list of some of the ways very successful people begin their day. Like this:
Of course, the contents of this cell can be completely personalized, but these are a few of the activities successful people have mentioned most frequently as powerful ways to start their day. Think about adding one or more to your checklist.
This same feature is also available for the other Section headers such as 2. Action, 3. Rest/Reflect, KPIs, Financial, etc. This feature is easily retrofitted to your current version. Call for help.

If you double click the "Checklist Purpose" cell, it will pop up the complete contents of the cell. See below. Of course your purpose will be different. And it will probably change over time, but thinking clearly about what you are doing, and WHY is most important.

Note that I use the "Focus" menu selection to keep only two days visible at any time: today and yesterday. Any more and all that noise is distracting.
