My business checklist for today.
I’m a big fan of checklists. Pilots love them too, along with surgeons, car manufacturers and software engineers.
A checklist is great for a long list of things you have to do... and they are an ironclad substitute for a failing memory.
My memory is pretty good however.
But there are times during the day when I stop for a break and when I return I'm not sure whether I completed what I was doing.
So I run my daily life with a to-do list.
I use Evernote, and on a single page I have a list of around 30 daily To-Do's with a checkbox opposite each one.
The Evernote website
Each item I complete, I tick the box as completed. When the next day comes round, the first thing I do is uncheck them all manually and see what I didn’t finish.
Then I make sure that gets done before anything else.
For example, as you can see in the list at the top, I'm down to writing this newsletter starting 9am.
So what's this got to do with playing the lottery?
It is simply this: You don't need any fussy checklist with my System.
There's no possible advantage in you having a to-do list for the lottery, because this is what it will look like each week:
1. Grab tickets
2. Drive down to lotto store
Seriously, that’s all. Unless you play online, in which case it’s even simpler.
There’s no ongoing calculations, fussing about with numbers and filling out forms or tickets ever again.
And here's something few people know...
... you don't even have to make a spreadsheet with your wins on.
Because if you win one week, there’s no need to make adjustments to your play or the number of tickets you need.
Next week does NOT depend on how well you did this week.
Not many players figure this out.
They think that as they ‘use up’ the numbers each time, they are getting closer to winning big.
That’s not the case.
Numbers don't have memories, and it’s not part of my System either. There’s no such thing as hot and cold numbers.
Even frequently-won numbers - or ‘due’ numbers are a fallacy.
Once you know this, then the best way to play with my System is to:
- Play frequently. Once a week is good, but if you’re on a small budget like $10 a game, wait a month and spend $40. It’s the size of your ticket spread that gets the wins.
- Always look at your ticket investment as an entry fee to the game. It is not a profit & loss account where a loss one game should be made up the next. Playing lotto merely means you're in to win, and if the win is not as high as you'd hoped, there’s always the next game to look forward to.
- Always stay positive. It helps to know other players in the same game who you can meet up with and talk about your results. You'd be surprised how just listening to other winners can get you enthusiastic again.
Read what Jason, our multi-million dollar winner wrote when he only took a few months to get his jackpot. In his email to me, he said:
Still shaking from my win, bought your Silver Lotto system last year and have played lotto regularly since, definite small wins and a few no wins, until last night. Checked my ticket online and I have won 1st division $22,236,652.87.
That’s a cool $22 million. What could you do with that sum this week?
This - make another type of list and check it off when you win - a Wish List!
