Welcome to Templates For Life!
This site is a good source of different helpful templates for your business and life.
Each post in Templates for Life provides information about a different business task or procedure and discusses the best templates, charts and graphs to apply to that situation
You will find examples that you may already use in your business activities on a daily basis. But you will also find tools that you have never used or that you might not have considered using in that particular context.
How to use Templates for Life
You can dip into this site to find particular topics and to make use of the information without necessarily reviewing everything that came before. It will help make the difficult, often impossible job of analyzing and presenting complex ideas and concepts to clients and associates fast, simple, thorough, and inexpensive.
Ultimately, the value of business and life templates lies as much in the process of creating the chart as in the consumption of its product. Charting stimulates the development of a deeper understanding of a business and its environment, and it forces the formulation and evaluation of alternatives that would not otherwise be considered. It unleashes large amounts of creativity that are so often suppressed by routine and the need to respond to crises.
This site is not for studying “everything.” Delineating a clear direction is a prerequisite for success. Knowing when to use the available templates is also a key to success, and there is no substitute for the hard work of selecting and using these tools to craft solutions tailored to your company’s unique context and needs. We will tear ourselves to pieces, trying to go in 100 different directions at the same time, unless we find out what we want most and make that the goal of our supreme effort. Demonstrating leadership requires the willingness to assess situations, think through the available options, decide on the tools to be used and how to adapt them as needed, and then accept accountability for the decisions made and the results achieved.
