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 clinic 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. You can use 1, 2, 3 or in some cases 1A, 1B, 1C would provide better clarity on sequential tasks.
Next, type in specific tasks. The leader of the task, next report date, and finally deadline. Each member of the team with a task must keep a task list. If you are the clinic leader, you may have other team members tasks listed 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.
Here are some examples for clinic tasks. If you have this printed out, you can use this final column to draw an O when you have decided to activate or begin work on that task. Draw a line through it when the task is completed. You might have items on here that you anticipate will be a priority in the future, but sometimes you need to say no to the good to focus on the great. Turn off that distraction mindset and turn on an execution mindset. So, if it’s not yet on your priority list, go ahead and put it at the bottom and focus on what’s wildly important.
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!
