17 - Obtaining Statistics
Obtain statistical data from your daily planner and analyze them. The standard activities of your daily planner model are tipified in order for you to be able to synthesize and analyze the actual use of your time versus what had been planned. All executives - those who do and those who do not hold managerial or top management positions - should have an analysis model, such as a spreadsheet, and review it at least once a year. We recommend quarterly reviews. Make sure that the analysis will help you take corrective actions in order to improve, and note down these improvement actions on your daily planner, for it will imply that you will need to do something. Otherwise, the exercise is merely theoretical, academic, and impractical.
