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!
