Check Emails: I feel it is important to accomplish this task first thing in the morning. Before I go to bed, I try to have a rough idea of what needs to be done the next day. If I have received an email that needs my attention, it's nice to know about it early so my schedule can be adjusted. Current Events: By scanning several different news sites, I can stay on top of events that may have an effect on my Network Marketing business. It also gives me some ideas of what I would like to share on my blog that day. Besides, it feels good to stay informed. Process Applications and Orders: The best part of my day is bringing a new associate into my business. We all remember the excitement we felt when we first started in the Network Marketing industry. We were full of hope at the possibility of becoming a successful business owner. Staying on top of orders for products and services is a very important task also. Post To My Blog: I try to come up with an informative blog post each day. I will admit some days are easier than others. By tying in the currents events that I read earlier in the day, it keeps the posts fresh and interesting. Prepare For Tomorrow: At the end of my workday, I jot down a rough outline of the tasks for the next day. Organizing my workspace will make it easier to flow through my checklist. The name of the game with checklist is repetition. You what the items on the list to become second nature. As you can see, your checklist does not have to be long. Decide what tasks are important enough that you feel the need to complete them every day. You can also make adjustment as you get used to working with the checklist. Just as in aviation, before long you will have the items committed to memory. We always consult the checklist just to make sure. Give it a try for a couple of weeks. My guess is that you will like the structure a checklist can bring to your daily lives.
First off, you should know that Jill is a very spontaneous person; "plan" just isn't a word that has ever entered her vocabulary. She has sisters that are much more suited to planning this type of a party, but it really doesn't matter. No matter how unorganized you think you are, planning a successful party is as easy as creating a party planning checklist. I took all of the Post_Its, and with Jill's help, we organized them into a puzzle of sorts. This puzzle was the start of her checklist. I could see that she had written down names of places, dates and times, menu ideas, theme ideas, and people's names. Everything we need for a good checklist seemed to be on the notes.
