If you are not careful, items that need immediate attention can easily overtake your time. If you continuously push items off that need attention, you will find your days filled with tasks that you have postponed. Keeping a Fix It List allows you to track items that are important and need your attention sooner rather than later. It allows you to prioritize tasks based on how dangerous they are to ignore, and can prevent things from becoming problems down the road.
- Never assume that you will fix a thing later, unless you write it down and prioritize it, because you won’t.
- Put any fix it item that could interfere with safety at the top of your to-do list.
- Have a regularly scheduled time weekly designated specifically as your repair things time.
