Principle One – Parkinson’s Law
“work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion”
Parkinson’s Law – work expands to fill the time available for its completion – means that if you
a task, we gain back more time and the task will reduce in complexity to its natural state. If we do not define the time for a task for ourselves or our direct reports, small tasks have the ability to needlessly steal time, energy,
and resources for days, weeks, even months.
