“Work expands so as to fill all the time available for its completion.” – Parkinson’s Law, Cyril Parkinson
If you want something done quickly delegate this task to someone who is very busy. He’ll perform fast and well. If you delegate to someone who has a lot of available time, you’ll see that the deadline will be largely exceeded.
Why is it so? Simply because, according to another famous law, the Pareto, 80% of the work is done in the last 20% of available time.
If you know how to put these two laws of human behavior to your service, you will never fail a deadline, you’ll duplicate your effectiveness as an employee, multiply your income and your time.
Look for the people with little time to collaborate with you, impose short deadlines on yourself and professionally, flee from the unoccupied persons.
More productivity, more time and more money in the bank account are not result to neglect, and you can get them smartly by using these two laws in your everyday life.
