Trick: Duration of completed tasks

ashwin says:
I have a Smart List named Done showing all the tasks that I have completed. It is nice to see what tasks I have finished each day. However, it would be also useful to know how long I took to finish each of those tasks.

To get this data in there, before I mark a task as complete, I edit its name and add the duration it took to complete it at the end. That way, all the completed tasks have their duration in their title.

For example:
Study chapter 2 (2.5hours)
Study chapter 1 (1.5hours)
