The power of checklists

By Samantha Enslen •

This is a tweet from an ACES chat on using checklists when editing.

I’ve been speaking a lot recently about the power of checklists.

Yesterday, I did a Twitter chat about checklists for ACES, the American Copy Editors Society.

I and my fellow tweeters talked about how checklists help us cope with an overwhelming world by getting “all those things we’ve got to remember” out of our heads and onto paper. How they guide us through complicated tasks. And how they help us remember detailed steps when we’re tired, stressed, or distracted.

Enjoy reading the Storify of this chat and consider adding checklists into your editing routine. You won’t be sorry.
