Have you ever had one of those days? You have been super busy all week, but everything is due at the end of the day. So, you have 24 hours to get everything on your to-do list finished. It’s a tall order. Let’s look at the list. Each item on your to-do list below will take about the same amount of time. You just need to get everything done.

You may not have enough sleep time as usual, but that’s okay since you can make up your sleep the next day. Let’s look at your to-do list below.

Wow! That to-do list seems like a lot of work. You want to determine how long each task will take if you allot the same amount of time for each item.
