Here’s how to never feel like you’re racing the clock at work again:
Have an ‘appetite’ for each task in your to-do list.
Instead of deciding how long it DOES take…
Decide how long it will take, THIS time.
Then shape the work to fit the time you’ve given it.
If it ‘normally’ takes 2 weeks, but you only have 1, that’s fine. Shape what a ‘1 week version’ looks like.
If everyone agrees on the scope, you’re fine!
If they don’t, they’ll give you 2 weeks!
No more clock chasing.
