Checklists are of different types. You need to choose the right kind of list to ensure that the work is optimized and the right formatting is done.
Task checklist: A task checklist is used when you do not have much of a judgment, but need to remember a number of things. You should use these lists to write the details of the things to be remembered. These are highly detailed and may contain categories of things. There may be individual groups of objects or lists of different objects under a certain group. For example, you might list up the ingredients required to prepare a certain recipe or the things to carry when you are leaving for work.
Troubleshooting checklist: When you need judgement-oriented checklists, you can use troubleshooting checklists. These lists are less technical in nature. Suppose, the engine of your car is not starting. There is a list of probable causes in the list, and you need to check out these factors to ensure that the car will get started. A troubleshooting checklist is commonly used when there is a problem regarding your work, and you want to fix the trouble by going through the list. It has to be based on your judgment.
To do list: These are often regarded as personal checklists. You can list up the things that you need to do with the help of these checklists. You may include as much detail as possible in these checklists, as required. It is done to prevent missing out something important. For instance, you may be packing your bag for a holiday, and want to make sure that you have not left something important behind. In these cases, these lists will be of optimum benefit for you.
People will always tend to forget things like tasks and appointments if they don’t have a certain guideline to follow. And in reality as people, there will always be a limitation to our capability of remembering things. Too much of anything is dangerous, and too much knowledge on something is just as harmful both to us and to people with whom we interact.
