Be Realistic About Time Management

"Procrastinators are poor judgers of how much time things take," Ferrari says. To combat that, he suggests paying close attention to how long it actually takes to complete tasks--say, preparing that report or studying for that exam--then tacking on a little additional time "because life gets in the way."
