Set up a winnable game.

Set up a winnable game.

Most of us underestimate what we can do in a year but overestimate what we can do in an hour.

We want to be able to say “I can get it done tomorrow”—but we have to be realistic about what is possible.

If we constantly give ourselves impossible deadlines, we will feel perpetually behind and frustrated.

Give yourself a long enough runway to gain the speed required to take off.

As a result, you will be more reliable and less stressed in your life because you are not stuck in a never-ending game of catch-up — you have allocated the proper amount of time for each item and can complete each task.
