A brilliant writer, surgeon and MacArthur Fellow, Atul Gawande has written, in The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right (Metropolitan Books, 2009), about how we can significantly reduce errors by using humble, well-designed checklists. As a surgeon, he was motivated to find ways to assist doctors in making split-second decisions in pressure-filled, complicated environments. His provocative thinking and findings are readily applicable to any daily or work-life situation. Intriguing takeaway: Errors used to be ones of ignorance (we just didn’t know); now they are more often ones of ineptitude (we didn’t make the proper use of what we do know).
