Rachel Maddow believes in checklists too

Here are some things to consider doing. Some items may not be applicable to you.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Rachel Maddow, on her Oct. 14 MSNBC show, strongly recommended the use of checklists in the fight against Ebola.

In the segment, she highlighted the creation of the world’s first well-known checklist after an aircraft mishap on October 30, 1935. It was that mishap and checklist that I highlighted when I founded Checklists Day about six years ago. Rachel even used the same photo of the mishap that I put on my Checklists Day web page.

If something needs to be done right, a checklist is often the best way to help ensure it is done right.
