Bud’s accountability, June 20, 2016.
Too damn that or do something different with this accountability. I’m going to include many of the things that are not related to my self-reliance website. And when I get done with listing my accountability I’m going to include a little bit about how I have learned to plan my time over the years.
I did not complete everything on last week’s list. So it is and move forward to this list. The reason being, the excuse, was that I had a lot of other things get in the way. We had some intense family problems to deal with and I had a bunch of shop work for friends and neighbors that needed to be completed. Just as an aside I make or $50 an hour for my shop work. This gives me the needed income to balance my budget and move forward with this project and it provides a valuable service to others at a price they can afford.

Now I’d like to take some time and talk a little bit about how I have integrated this accountability project in the my normal method of accounting for my time. I have been one of the lucky people to have been sent by my employer many years ago to attend the Franklin Covey courses on personal daily and long-term planning. I have revised that training and use it for years. That training was a turning point in my life. Since I fully developed a method to use it I accomplish approximately 20 tax each week that take over two hours plus when I allow it I have time for myself. I always include family time in this planning. My wife and I have been married for 65 years and we have almost always had some sort of a date each week in those 65 years.
I create a mind map each week for what I want to accomplish and then I move that into my daily planner. I don’t know what there is about it but writing those tasks down in that planner seem to be the catalyst to getting them done. That planner also becomes a journal. I just hope that my family enjoys them after I’m gone.
Many times I create a mind map based upon the various jobs or job titles that I need to accomplish each week. I have found that weekly planning is the shortest period of time that you can do to ensure your accomplishment of tasks. It is also important to have monthly plans nearly plans and long-term plans. I hope that this is helpful to someone. My greatest goal in life is to be able to help other people to make their lives better. If you want more information about my methods don’t hesitate to contact me.
