A procedure checklist is simply a list of specific, small actions to take in a clear and logical order. Instead of doing what feels best in the moment, we take the time to think it through, make it clear, and so save ourselves not only time but also willpower points. Because making decisions takes energy and willpower, having the checklist to work from keeps us on track more consistently. A procedure checklist is the best tactic for overwhelmed moms at home.
This month’s topic inside membership and here on the podcast is procedure lists. They can be such a helpful tool to catapult us from inaction to momentum in our day. To talk about how and why that is, I brought on Stefani Mons, my community manager inside Simply Convivial Circle. When you join, she gets you into a small accountability group and she’s active in many conversation channels. She’s an ISTJ and boy, does she know how to use checklists. She has some great, practical ideas that I think you’re going to find super useful.
Let’s dig in.
