Sanity in the Chaos

I'd like to post on the merits of keeping lists. Now I'm not ordinarily a list keeper and I'm not one of those people who derive great satisfaction from crossing things off. But in the midst of startup land where chaos rules due to the sheer number of things that need to be accomplished and are being worked on daily, lists are mandatory. We currently have 3 people working full time and 2 people part time remote. We've been having one team meeting per week and develop milestones for the next week. While we don't always accomplish all milestones and some of these milestones shift, even in the mid-week time frame, it's incredibly helpful to write them down somewhere (we use Groove) for all to see.

As the Franklin-Covey guys say, "woosh!"
