# 77: Record your commitments. 
If you are meeting with an individual or a team, always take notes indicating what you have promised to do.  Include details of your commitment, time frames, and contact information.  Then follow through.

#108: Use the PDCA improvement cycle. 
1) Plan an improvement.
2) Do – implement the change.
3) Check – measure success.
4) Act – make adjustments. 

Then, do it all over again!
