“A short pencil is better than a long memory”

Ask anyone who is successful in business and they will tell you;  one way or another, you need a PHYSICAL list, of what needs to get done and in what order if you want to make certain something gets done.      In aviation,  that’s a checklist.    Hospital workers use them and so do scuba divers.   Wherever safety is involved, people use checklists.

Certain things must always be on a primary list for any business.

planning and review

file paperwork / tidy office


marketing research

business promotion

expand contactts

build / maintain partner / employee  / supplier relationships

forecasting and testing


Or, from a pilot’s perspective

flight plan filed

clearance and takeoff

heading and course correction, winds


weather and terrain awareness

alternate airports and routes

position check, arrival time estimate

destination, landing.

Checklist – personal

Get still, then get busy

First get still, then get busy


Most people have personal goals and responsibilities they need to keep track of.    Some of these are optional.    But there are some things that by nature we need to do just be content and prosperous.      One deep need is to be still, calm, at rest.

That’s when we fly in dreams, in our contemplation.     In our inward flights we get perspective, see forward and all around us.   It’s when answers come to our questions, and when solutions become obvious.

Personal checklist

meditate / pray


planning and review

personal care

good nutrition


build / maintain relationships

kindness to other beings / service
