Making a checklist turned my random wandering into an actual routine. I can see what I have forgotten. I can add new things as they come up or shuffle the order if it’s not working quite right. I can take something off the list that I don’t want to do any more.
Jeff Youngstrom's Life List
I created a checklist a while back listing every tiny little thing I need to do between getting up and leaving the house. There are 40+ things on that list! Of course some of them are trivial and obvious (“put on glasses”), but just having them written down in a prescribed order has helped a lot with making my morning peregrinations less random.
I think there’s still room for improvement so I’m not declaring this done yet.
Since we live outside of Seattle, Vancouver isn’t a major trek, but we had a great time on our visit.
