I lack the ability to properly estimate the time it takes to accomplish a task. Sure, many people say “…give me five minutes…” or “…it will be done by the end of day…”. That’s not my problem – my problem is that I just can’t give any where near a ballpark estimate.
Yesterday my manager asked me how long it would take to complete task A. I freaked out at the spec and said five days. I started this morning and I finished about fifteen minutes ago. It’s kind of insane. Now my manager is asking why I said it wouldn’t be done until next week if I got it done in a day. I told him I was bad at estimating. I really don’t have a better reason than that.
