Checklist Development

I spend a lot of time thinking about checklists--they're the only way to be sure all goes well. I imagine circumstances and plan out what to do in those cases, then formalize them into lists of actions. On the one hand, checklists are invaluable; everyone from serious divers to aircraft pilots use them. On the other hand, you mustn't be a slave to a checklist if conditions differ than what you expected...and if you step far outside your front door, that is what you find!
