Unbroken Chain is a technique to track important promises in your calendar to make sure things get done.
It is simple and effective way holding people accountable and thanking them for completing the task.
It utilizes The Calendar to write things down.
What do you do when you delegate a task or someone promises to do something for you?
Many people leave it with a hope that it will be done but a vague feeling of unease that it might not. They may return to check at some point, only to be fobbed off with a response like "it's in the pipeline."
To avoid this, ask for a specific date for completion and write it down in your diary.
This way, you can be reminded to check if the promise has been kept. If not, get another date and keep doing so until it is done. If it has been completed, put the next action in your diary.
Advantages of this technique include holding people accountable and thanking them for completing the task. Moreover, it reduces stress and increases efficiency. Even if you have to complete a task yourself, write it down in your diary with a due date. For critical tasks, consider setting an earlier check-in date. In conclusion, always write everything down.
