Example of set a time limit to complete a task
Assume you need to write up five reviews in time for a meeting. However, you realize that you'll only be able to get four of them done in the time remaining before the meeting. If you become aware of this fact well in advance, you may be able to easily delegate writing up one of the reviews to someone else. however, if you hadn't bothered to do a time check on your tasks beforehand, you might have ended up not realizing your time problem until just an hour before meeting. At that point it might be considerably more difficult to find someone to delegate one of the reviews to and more difficult for them to fit the task into their day to.
