“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.
