Wanted: One Crystal Ball, in Good Working Order

Estimating the length of time it’s going to take to finish a project is a dark art at the best of times. Other times . . . .

“Four weeks? Sure.”
typity-typity-typity
…time passes…
“Make that five, and I’ll have it by close of business on Friday.”
typity-type-type
…more time passes…
typity-type-type-damn!
“Um . . . Monday morning?”

Let’s just say it can make me feel like Achilles trying to catch that damned tortoise.
