Personal Quality checklist

When I joined the organisation I used to work for, there was a lot of management focus on Personal Quality. Our organisation was working with Dr. Harry V Roberts, Prof. of Statistics and Quality Management at the Graduate School of Business, University of Chicago. One of the tools that he wanted us to work with was a Personal Quality Checklist, something similar to what Benjamin Franklin pioneered over two centuries ago. Franklin planned to inculcate thirteen virtues in his life, temperance, silence, order, resolution, frugality, industry, sincerity, justice, moderation, cleanliness, tranquillity, chastity and humility and used to maintain a checklist to check his shortcomings. The idea of talking about the personal quality checklist here is of course to tell you that, this is something that you can try for yourself using getgoaling.com. The simple idea of stroking ticks when you make it or just stroking a wrong will make you aware whether you have inculcated something that you would like to keep as a habit or failed at it. And the awareness that you have not made it will surely spur you to make more efforts in the direction to succeed. So try it and share your experience.
