Any kind of routine work can distract you from your more important activities. But what happens if you become so distracted that you start making mistakes? How much time do you get to lose?
What it means to have a verification list
In order to avoid those thinking breaks – how to do this or that – and to eliminate the necessity of redoing something, you need to pay attention to some detailed verification lists. Even when you are in doubt or you are not sure about something in particular, verification lists will save a lot of time.
How to implement the necessity of a verification list
Whenever they are about to sell something, most companies come up with some forms. Completing such a form functions like a registration and represents the first phase in the further evolution of the action. It may also support the valencies of a verification list, only to remind the buyer to double check particular elements:
- Double check the name of the company, as well as the representative’s name.
- Identify the informative sources related to the respective products or services.
- Ask for a bank account.
A form can always include such data. Plenty of such routine details are not really predictable. The customer might provide all kinds of information, but it is also very simple to forget about the so called optional or less significant questions. Therefore, a verification list can be very useful. It can be a form, a reference paper or a note.
I guess that all kinds of tasks can relate to such an approach. You might want to have a memento note for tasks that do not necessarily represent your main responsibilities.
