@uint8_t I usually take my initial estimate in days, double it and round up the next full week.

Once upon a time I used to able to estimate my work work +-1 day reliably.
Then I got more responsibilities, more meetings and a bunch of colleagues asking me for help regularly.

So now I present my estimates like this:
"If I get to fully focus on this: 4 days. With everything else that ends up being dumped on my desk: about two weeks."
