Things don’t take as short a time as they might seem. We plan, project, expect, then the calendar disappoints. You might look at a project that should take a week, then it takes seven.
The scary part is how much that scares us. When we are five months behind a project, it seems the sky is falling. But, is it? When your house takes longer than expected to build, do the seasons stop?
Don’t get worked-up about how much longer projects take. Some projects take less time than expected. It doesn’t always even out, but life isn’t surprised; we are.
