Love to have you give us a call at (918) 494-7093 or check us out on the web at complete carpet, tulsa.com Carpet Cleaning Tulsa in our fiber. One of the things I wanted to talk with you about today is the importance of consistency. Um, having a set list, a set way, a set problems, a way to um, approach what it is that you’re wanting to try to accomplish each and every day. If you take and put those things into perspective, you’ll have a easier time making sure that each day follows through on the others. Obviously we try to learn through habit, but part of habit is the memorization. The other side is to just skip memorization completely and go with a preset list. I love the old Benjamin Franklin quote that says that the pen is for remembering and the minus is for critical thinking.
Speaker 1: (00:53)
Yes, we can’t remember and we can teach our bodies to do things in a certain way. You want to be able to teach it all of your general core tasks so that you get things accomplished quickly and efficiently. But one of the things that I think matters when you’re trying to accomplish a goal is to not have to rely on just remembering, did I get these origin? Because when you put somebody as second nature and you no longer are checking things off a list, you’re just doing and you’re kind of feeling it doesn’t feel right. Does it feel like I get it done? And that’s how everybody ends up on a vacation without having the things that they need because they got to it day felt like this is probably what I needed to have a feel like I grabbed everything in my mind, senses that I’ve done the right thing. Carpet Cleaning Tulsa.
Speaker 1: (01:32)
But you haven’t actually physically checked it off. A, there was a study done on the checklist manifesto that where he talks about how they found out that the number of deaths that could have been avoided by a doctor just running a checklist because of things that would have been on the checklist, he would have remembered to do. Uh, because of the checklist showing things that were just missed. Simply like washing hands or um, cleaning the wound or making sure that there’s not something that um, got missed during the process, that they ended up getting an infection and dying for the patient or for the patient or I say a airplane, definitely to go through the checklist, give you takeoff without making sure that there was fuel and the thing you didn’t just say, Oh yeah, I think I checked the fuel. No. Is there a little mark here to show, to remind, let you know that you did actually do that task? Carpet Cleaning Tulsa.
Speaker 1: (02:19)
And if it’s not there, then obviously you’ve got a problem because now the, um, it’s not been fully finished, ended up in the air without enough gas and you’re going to crash. So taking things and breaking them down to where it’s very simple to go back and review and to remember, Hey, did I get these certain things done? Then you need to make sure that those things that are happening on a consistent basis to where you’ll be able to have a consistent effect at kiss assistant approach. Carpet Cleaning Tulsa since 1998 we are complete carpet. I’m, one of the things that we find our customers really appreciate is that we’re really giving them the same experience each time that comes from having a checklist, having a process, having a way that we want, try to get things done for both the customer and for our technicians and when we’re trying to be out on a job site.
Speaker 1: (03:04)
And then that might be something simple as making sure that we always clean behind the door or that we, um, always try to clean up a spot twice, um, that we pull the hose in a certain order, that we bring the hose into the house instead of dragging them into the house or dragging them through the house. Um, making sure that we have, um, a follow up email or follow up text message or that we call to confirm our appointments. Um, these things we could try to remember them on a case by case basis, but then you’re eventually gonna forget because, you know, to be honest, sometimes we forget what we did yesterday or what we’ve tried to do or accomplish. And so many times you want to have those things be just somehow set and so you can just set it and forget it.
Speaker 1: (03:45)
And that way you can look to see, okay, is there a check mark next to the box saying I did this and if there isn’t a check mark next to that box, then you need to go back and do it that way. You know, hey, this is what I’ve gotten accomplished. I actually had a, a, a good customer who was the pastor and he said that he would actually verbatim write all of his sermons out because he found that if he didn’t write a sermon all the way out completely, that he would end up getting up there. Carpet Cleaning Tulsa He’s steady, he’s prepared, he’s ready for this sermon. Then he gets up to speak, he starts talking in circles because he’ll repeat or tell the same story again. Or he’ll start to make a point, get off track and then forget what point he was making because he doesn’t have notes that he’s following to where he can just jump right back into the notes that he was at before.
Speaker 1: (04:27)
And so the thing that you have to try to do to help you is by checklist makes you systematically go through and do the same process over and over. You may intrinsically or intuitively remember the process you needed to do to get that particular item finished. Say Clint cleaning the carpets or cleaning the chair or cleaning a rug, but you won’t remember if you’ve accomplished them all without some type of a check and balance system to remind you, hey, this is what I needed to do perfectly. Carpet Cleaning Tulsa since 1998 we are complete carpet. Give us a call today at (918) 494-7093. Um, I think it’s one of those things that we all think we want to believe that we are better than everyone else. Not that we were a better person, but that we don’t need to go through and actually use a checklist. And yet we feel so much more as loving.
Speaker 1: (05:16)
I had a guy who refer to this way is that it gives you mind freedom if your mind is bogged down. Trying to remember all the small details of the ticky deck docket, things that you’re trying to commit it to. Memory. For example, if you’re at a a a school and you’ve got a class of 30 kids, you could try to put, just commit to perfect memory, um, all the kids’ names. Or You could have a list that shows a seating arrangement and then you could just look down and see where that person is seated and then you’ll be able to see who’s in that seat, immediately know the name of that person as opposed to try and just memorize cold all 30 names and eventually over time you’ll eventually know the names. But as far as reference, you can just look down and see talking to you, look at their spot and they chart immediately know where they’re at. I think it’s those types of things gives you mind freedom. Your mind can be freed up to pay attention or look at more important things instead of just trying to remember a bunch of names for things that you may not remember or need to know for later.
