Most of us don’t know how long it actually takes to complete routine tasks. We end up in a hurry because we underestimate the time needed.
TRY ONE OF THESE:
- Time yourself doing a task to give you a guideline to follow when making future commitments.
- Double (or triple!) the amount of time you think something “should” take. This will probably get you closer to the actual requirement.
- Avoid scheduling more than one ultra-demanding task on any given day.
