Don’t forget “back thing”

We found this workout regime downstairs in our “shed”, a reminder of inhabitants past.

I had to take a photo and share it with you because it so accurately represents the procedures I find in so many small businesses.

I’m sure the exercise “back thing” was completely self explanatory to our lone exerciser in the shed, but if I were to try and replicate his exercise plan using just his procedure it’d be complete pot luck as to whether I was anywhere near what he meant by “back thing”.

How many “back thing”-esque occurrences are there in your procedures?

If I came into your workplace today and sat down with your procedures could I complete your systemised tasks or would I be left scratching my head and wondering what on earth you meant?

The picture on the wall tells another story - a lot of trouble to create a plan and system to record the exercises - it seems it was only fulfilled once - how much time do we put into getting all the right plans,diary's and systems only to use them once and go back to our old ways - there is not enough room for me to record how many times I am guilty of this.
