The standard length of a lanyard is 6 ft. The problem is that depending on where you need to tie off and how far you need to go, 6 ft can be too short or too long. Too short and you're constantly being pulled on; too long and you're tripping over it. Additionally, depending on how high up you are, you 6 ft might leave you hitting the ground or the level underneath.
One of the best solutions is a personal fall limiter. This is a small retractable lanyard that clips onto the back D-ring and retracts and expands as needed. The principle is the same as a seat belt.
