Actually, 20 hours is a pretty decent amount of time. It is basically a daily, but if over the course of your gameplay, you login and play a little bit earlier on one day then normal, you can start with the rep project right away.

Having something time gated at such a large amount of time is much less annoying than having something time gated at a shorter amount of time. This is largely because most people have an inherent drive to advance the most in the game in the least amount of time possible.

Imagine if the timer was at 15 minutes. You would feel compelled to keep on waiting for the timer run down so you could start the next project. It would be extremely annoying. 2-5 minutes would be about the worst, because you couldnt really get anything else done.

Having the 20 hour cool down more or less forces you to do something else, which means you wont sit around watching the timer go down waiting, and instead will do more active things in the game.
