Make your process recite-able

Microprinciples

I like to talk about processes in terms of recite-ability. If everyone involved in the process can’t recite it off the top of their head, try to simplify it.–Mike Crittenden

Straight wisdom from Critter’s blog. If you can’t describe a process at work (or in life) in a handful of simple words:

…then perhaps you don’t have a process at all.

And if you don’t have a process, then your actions are effectively random. And if what you do is random, then your actions lack intention. And if your actions lack intention, then how will you get where you want to go?

To do what you say, you must be able to say what you do.
