When life boils down, gets distilled and the real things surface, the awareness becomes that 99% of life can be pickled down into a check list.
Pilots do it preflight. You see it and hear it. "Toilet door closed? Check. Fuel full? Check. Wings bolted on? Check. and away we fly. IF they didn't do that check, your luggage might end up in the ocean. It's for all of us as passengers a good thing that the pilot is not "HOPING" everything is ok, nor assuming it. A preflight check saves lives.
So, when you go to work and sit at your ridiculous mobile workstation to be a great leader, what's your pre-flight check? Do you "HOPE" everything is ok or do you "assume" you're in "super leader" mode and just start where you left off yesterday?
I suggest to make check lists for everything. Even going into a meeting requires, for me, a check list. So, today here's my check list for sitting down and starting work each day... I may have missed a few great Chris words like "in a state of grace" but that's because I'm trying to make this readable. So please add your own special language but I'm sure you'll see the parameters of pre-flight checking before work starts.
