Here is a tip which impacts both on time management and project management.
When we’re planning work time seems to stretch away from us into the distance. Looking ahead three months or six months can seem a long time in the future. But looking back three months or six months doesn’t seem anytime at all.
Try it. 10th March 2014 seems a lot further away than 10th September 2013. 10th June 2014 seems a lot further than 10th June 2013. So when we’re planning tasks or projects, it can be a useful tip to remember how time seems looking back before we agree to deadlines going forward.
One idea to implement this, is to consider a deadline and negotiate an additional 20% to 50% more time.
