13 - Accomplishing to your Plan
Do not betray your own daily planner. If you follow it strictly, you have high chances of accomplishing what was planned. This seems obvious. Nevertheless, we often forget to do that. You should check your daily planner several times a day and, more specifically, before any activity change. It is a matter of ensuring you are following the plan, of guiding your activities based on the plan, and of reinforcing your commitment to accomplishing what was planned. A basic rule is to never engage in any activity that demands a significant amout of time, except for the activities scheduled on your daily planner. If you betray your daily planner, you are eliminating it as a management tool and, consequently, you lose your main support to achieve the self-discipline demanded by time management.
