Do you know your personal minimums?

Before starting a project, always check your “personal minimums”.

  1. Do I have the knowledge to perform the task?
  2. Do I have all the technical data to perform the task?
  3. Have I performed the task previously?
  4. Do I have the proper technology to perform the task?
  5. Have I had proper training for the task?
  6. Am I mentally prepared to perform the task?
  7. Do I have the resources necessary to perform the task?

After any task, ask yourself:

  1. Did I perform the task to the best of my ability?
  2. Did I perform according to recommended industry standards?
  3. Did someone perform quality control on my work?
  4. Am I willing to sign off on the task?
