Personal Accountability

Since the accountability proposed here is personal and informal, each one of us can choose the tool we consider the easiest to use; as shown above, my preference is MS Access, where I have previous years in separate tables renamed to log2001 and log2002 and the current table called 'archivo'

After conveniently personalizing the settings of the tool of choice, it will be maintained to help its owner recall all the details considered of possible future importance, like...
  • electric storms
  • unexpected visitors
  • emergency calls
  • misunderstandings, etc.

Everything is optional in your own personal accountability log, which liberates you from the pressure of reporting specific details for control or tabulation; the only important rule is to fill it up somehow, showing details that later could [at least] help as reference points to focus your memory on the sequence of events.

For example, today I had to search for the outcomes of a meeting, which I found on October 21st. showing that I compromised to deliver an interface by January 1st. ... two days later I was involved in an emergency project that takes priority and delays that outcome and notification were provided. Next Friday will be my last workday of the year and I may not be able to produce that interface as promised.

I may find the same information in the structured official report for Management, but I prefer to see the additional details I wrote, just in case something else comes to mind.
