It is always a good idea to double check your calendar and make sure that you are aware of your schedule.
- What’s next?
- Do I have a 7:30AM event or 10:30AM?
- What is urgent?
- Has anything come up that wasn’t on the plan?
- What might conflict with getting work done?
- Do I have to be in person at the meeting or is it a phone conference?
- What takes time to complete before you meet to talk about it?
- Are you looking at the right year?
Apparently, even when you think you are planning ahead you can still make mistakes.
These can be due to your phone and your computer not being in sync; or looking at the wrong month (February and March have the same days and dates every year for 3 years in a row.) It can also occur by writing something down to hold the time and then forgetting to update the schedule when it gets booked.
It is best to double check your calendar, and ask those around you for verification. You wouldn’t want to miss out on something important – like for instance – spring break at college*. Luckily, when it is important enough, the people around you usually comment on things happening and help you get it right.

PS 2017 vs. 2018 it could happen, if you plan in August, maybe. I think that is what it was.
