We all hear this question at least once a day: "How long will it take?" Estimating how long it takes to accomplish a task doesn't have to be difficult. In this clip, I’m going to teach you an easy and simple way to estimate tasks that you can use right away.

If anything is so simple that you can evaluate with any certainty how long will take the worst & best case, then it must be so simple & trivial to do that you'd better have it done right away instead of losing precious time calculating some nonsense formula...
Seriously, I believe that for any non-trivial project, it's quite impossible to estimate seriously. The best qe can do is *guess* an approximate and add an enormous safety time just to be sure. So the best to do is guesstimate then start the job and re-evaluate the guesstimate regularly according to the quantity of work already done.
