Organized Kaos

Changing the way you work

Assume it will take longer

Posted by Coach Kim Collins on April 5, 2010

When you say that you can get something done in a minute, does it really just take 1 minute?

In my mind 1 minute doesn’t exist. If I think it will take 1 minute, I will say 5 minutes. If I think it will take me 5 minutes, I will allow for 15 minutes. Even if, for instance, I know that it will only take  me 15 minutes to get to the store, I will always plan for it to take 20 – 25 minutes.

These assumptions allow me to not only be on time – but early!
