Knowing how long a task takes helps avoid procrastination and meet deadlines. To get better at estimating times, download and print this free to-do sheet.
Reddit user LunchboxPCT shared this custom to-do format, with each A4 sheet turning into four mini sheets of the to-do list. Cut along the lines, stack them up, and you can make a to-do notepad. As we have said before, it’s best to maintain a paper to-do list for daily tasks and keep your master task list digital.
Each sheet of this mini to-do list is divided into boxes for tasks before noon and after noon. Write your task in the middle and put the estimated time in the "ET" column on the left. Once the task is done, write down how long it actually took in the "AT" column on the right. Soon, you’ll develop a snapshot of your regular tasks and figure out the disparity between your estimations and reality.
