Are you falling victim to the planning fallacy?
Right now it probably takes you about 5 minutes to book each client. Say you book 5 people a day. (That’s 5 min/person x 5 people/day x 5 days/week x 4 weeks/month.)
That’s 500 minutes/month.
You’re wasting 8.4 hours per month booking.
Hard to believe? You’re likely falling victim to The “planning fallacy” coined by Daniel Kahneman. This is a fancy way of saying humans constantly underestimate how long tasks take, even tasks they’ve completed a zillion times.
Let’s pretend Daniel is full of it, and halve our original estimate. Then you’re still sinking 4 hours a month into a mundane task that you don’t get paid for.
But I’d argue that it’s not even the time that’s the big problem. It’s the constant distraction. The endless back and forth. It prevents you from living in the now; from being present.
