Simple checklists

There was a time in my life when I could only watch romantic comedies. Where the ending had to be guaranteed: Everything will work out fine.

A time when a simple checklist on repeat was the best I could do:

  • Is the baby alive. Check.
  • Is what I am doing keeping the baby alive. Check.
  • Go to step 1.

At times, I still benefit from simple checklists on repeat.
