Parkinson's Law


Work expands to fill the time available for its completion. This observation is known as Parkinson’s Law.

If you gave yourself a whole week to do a 2 hour task, then the task will increase in complexity to fill the time it takes to complete i.e. a whole week.

If you set an artificial deadline for a task or project, it forces you to prioritize the most important work. This also reduces your chances of Procrastination.
