Thoughts on the PTOTD
First off – never estimate on behalf of your team. It is simply not your place to do so. The art of estimation is for your team to master. Most PMs, including myself for while, think that giving accurate estimates will make them more succesful. In the long run, it makes you a terrible PM.
Work will take the same amount of time, it is destined to take. Think of it like waiting for the ‘Walk’ light to light up at a crossing. No matter how many times you press it, it’ll only turn on when it is time.
Instead, get better at the art of prioritizing. Being better at prioritization will make you a better PM.
