Without a plan, you’re hoping. You hope you understood what your boss wanted. You hope this feature is necessary. You hope this is what the client meant by “make it pop”. You hope you’ll find a way to wrap up this article coherently.

Here at Data McFly, we plan out what we are doing each day from writing on this blog, or the book, to code updates.

From experience elsewhere over the years, we've seen what happens when you don't plan and so, we keep a schedule of everything we are doing as we do it.

There may occasionally be a surprise or two, but for the most part, our schedule works for us.
