Do People Listen?
Do People Even Listen?
Earlier this week I asked people to help me come up with a companion to my notebook for maintaining checklists. I told them I wanted something simple that wasn't an entire task management tool.
I want an app that just gives me a simplified checklists to strike-through.— Jay Miller (@kjaymiller) February 26, 2019
Not looking for a task manager or project/life manager.
A lists of tasks that are either all completed or the thing I’m doing is not done.
Oh wow, I'm a dingbat...
This post was originally going to be on the fact that I people continuously gave me task management solutions when I SPECIFICALLY didn't ask for one. I spent the entire morning irked at the idea that people don't listen. As I looked up the original tweet I noticed that I SPECIFICALLY DID ASK for an App.
The solution that I went with finally (Baron Fig Mastermind Note Cards) was exactly what I was looking for, BUT NO ONE WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SUGGEST IT BECAUSE I SAID "APP".
So the answer to my earlier question is YES! They do listen. Just make sure that what you are telling them is what you want them to hear.
