The 10/90 Rule says that the first 10% of time used to plan your work can save you 90% of the execution time once you start. One minute of planning can save you 10 mins of execution time, and help you improve your “return on energy”. By setting aside 10-12 mins for planning, you can save 2 hours of execution the next day.
