Time-Binding the To-Do Lists

“Block your calendar to achieve wins.
One of the most common mistakes people make at the office
is not turning to-do lists into time-bound, effective project lists.
I’ve found that people who have mastered this hack
are far more likely to deliver tasks on time.

It’s simple: For each of the big things on your list,
block off the amount of time on your calendar
that you estimate the task might take — and
then add 33% more time just to be sure.”
