Time Passes Slower for Some

Part of excellence is timeliness, but a Wall Street Journal article pointed out that being on time can be more difficult for some people. Certain people underestimate how long a task will take.
One finding that surfaced in three different studies was that highly-driven, Type A individuals estimated that a minute passed in 58 seconds, while more laid-back, Type B individuals believed a minute passed in 77 seconds. Those seconds could add over two hours to a workday.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven.”
If you have trouble being timely, one recommendation is to begin breaking tasks into smaller steps so that you better understand how long a task takes, then adjust accordingly. You may become more productive!
