Schedule Task List

So, we were just talking about accountability, plan of action, lead measures. ​How do we keep all of our information organized and prioritized, in order to execute our WIGS, our wildly important goals? ​Well, welcome to the schedule task list. ​

This is a blank canvas for you to keep up electronically and is also in a printer-friendly format​. You have ranking priorities in the first column. Use 1, 2, 3, or for related sequential tasks, maybe a 1A, 1B, 1C would provide better clarity.​ Next, type in a specific task. Next, assign a leader of that task.

Each member of the team must have a task list. ​If you are the schedule team leader, other members of the team’s tasks might be on your own as well. ​Maybe you just provided or received team training. Go ahead and type in a reminder to check proficiency to help that training stick. ​If you have this printed out, you can use the final column to draw an O when you have decided to activate or begin working on that task. Draw a line through the O when the task is completed. ​Electronically, you can also go ahead and replace that O with an X.

You might have items on your task list that you anticipate will be a priority in the future, but you need to say no to the good sometimes and only focus on the great, to turn off a distraction mindset, and turn on an execution mindset. ​You can see task 6 without an O, meaning we’re going to save that one for later. It’s not even a priority at this time.

So, use your task list in your WIG meetings and however else you see fit as a tool to foster personal and team accountability. ​Good luck. ​
