Parkinson’s Law (Video)
“Parkinson’s Law states that work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.” This is the reason why you should be very careful of Parkinson’s Law.
Parkinson’s Law – coined by Professor Cyril Northcote Parkinson – is a behavioural phenomenon characterised by the human tendency to rarely finish jobs in less time allocated to them (or have more money at the end of the month, even after a pay rise).
Time management is all psychological. We naturally pace ourselves to finish a project in the nick of time. The same task can take one hour or one week depending on how much time we give ourselves to complete it.
Have you ever studied for a big test where your only prep was on the last day or your commute on the way over? The law is true!
