This podcast mentions checklists:
The checklist in this case is different than a TODO list – rather a standard operating procedure for common tasks, like writing a blog post, releasing software, etc. I’ve written plenty of these “procedures” over the years, but never formalized the concept in my mind this clearly – I can see a lot of value in this. Once you have a checklist, then it is more obvious where to automate, outsource, etc. It is also easier to get started and do a task if you have a checklist that makes it easy to run through things.
Come to think of it, I do have several personal checklists:
- general travel checklist (everything I need to pack to travel with family)
- backpacking checklist
Both of the above make traveling much less stressful.
Espanso might be a good tool to help automate parts of checklists.
