What If It Takes You Longer Than One Hour?
I’m only human so sometimes I get it wrong. So what does happen if a task I start takes longer than one hour?
If it takes 5 or 10 minutes more, you’ll never know. I’ll just get on and do it as a single task.
I review all tasks before starting work on them. This is where I identify those tasks that will obviously take longer than one hour.
But, if it’s obvious that it’s going to take well over an hour, first thing I’ll do is get in touch with you. Together, we’ll find a good point to split the single task to make sure you get the best outcome.
When this happens, any additional task will be treated as a completely new task requests. It will be put onto the list and have to wait its turn. If you want that new task to be completed before other tasks in your list, you can submit it as a Priority. Just don’t forget to manage the priorities of your other tasks in your task list.
