My big question is How do people get to places on time?

My specific question is do people that use a planner (physical or phone) get to their objectives completed?

  1. Park, E., & Yao, R. (2016). Financial risk attitude and behavior: Do planners help increase consistency?. Journal Of Family And Economic Issues,37(4), 624-638. doi:10.1007/s10834-015-9469-9

They studied meal planning which is planning ahead what food is eaten for the next few days. , They tested 40,554 participants and collected data on intakes of energy, nutrients, food groups, weight, and height.
