Have you ever wondered how to estimate the how many minutes or hours it will take to complete a
particularly large project?

There’s a simple rule of thumb that I keep in mind whenever I try to figure out how long it’s
going to take to do anything. It sounds a little ridiculous but I’m constantly amazed by how
accurate it is:
1) You make a good guess of how long it’s going to take.
2) Take that number and multiply it by at least 3.
If it takes you longer than 3 times your “guess” then you’re obviously way off or wasting a lot
of time somewhere.

If it takes less time then give yourself a pat on the pack. (Yup, this tip might sound
ridiculously simple but you will be amazed by how accurate it can be!)
