I have just read this interesting article on time management.

We all know Murphy’s Law is “if something can go wrong it will go wrong.”  But this article discusses Parkinson’s Law, which states:

“The amount of time which one has to perform a task is the amount of time it will take to complete the task.”

or another interesting variation on this is:

“If you wait until the last minute, it only takes a minute to do.”

Efficiency Work Management Time Estimation

Is it just me, or does everyone experience the phenomena where reported time is always equal or greater than planned time, and never less?

Just food for thought, but read this interesting article on Parkinson’s law from Lifehack.org and ask yourself, does any of this have any bearing on our work order time estimates?
