Estimation and shifting focus from absolute to relative

Estimation is so hard to do. Today, I talk about overcoming estimation obstacles, and some tactics to help you along the way.

It's difficult to know what we're capable of, especially if we haven't nailed down a routine. Even if you do have a routine down, you can't predict the future. How do we get around this when scoping a project?

I'll dig into this and many other questions about estimation and how we can make estimations work in our favor.
