Give yourself a little more time than you expect the task will take


It's better to err on the side of too much time than too little

All of us faced the situation when the due date of the task expires and we are still far from completing it. Time is up and you realize that the task won’t be finished on time, you start worrying and become disappointed and unfocused. One of the reasons for not meeting the deadline is that you planned not enough time to this task. Sometimes it is difficult to estimate the time that particular task will take beforehand because during its accomplishment you can meet unexpected obstacles that may cause procrastination. In this case the only advice is to plan some extra time for your tasks. It will be better if you err on the side of too much time rather than too little. You’ll have the possibility to finish the task in time or even earlier and feel yourself in a good spirit.

"A little more time" To Do List
