  • Oh my God, I finally understand it.

  • Work expands to the time allowed for it.

  • Work expands to the time allowed for it.

  • This'd idea changed my life, and I think it can change yours.

  • Let's say you want to write a letter, and the deadline is 10 PM You get a shower.

  • You spend one hour looking for the perfect paper, another hour looking for the perfect pen, another our thinking off the perfect words and another writing them.

  • By 10 PM Your letter is done.

  • But if you on Lee had 10 minutes to write the letter, you'll skip the shower.

  • You'll find a piece of paper, find a pen, write it down and you're good to go.

  • It's the same letter.

  • One took 10 hours to make.

  • Another took 10 minutes to make.

  • And this is work that expands to the time allowed for it.

  • It's called Parkinson's Law, and it's a really thing.

  • It's not procrastination.

  • It's not laziness.

  • It's unnecessary work that we do simply because way have time.

  • This'd isn't just you and me.

  • This'll is entire companies.

  • If the deadline is next month, we work every day.

  • We add many people to the project for one month to finish it.

  • But if the deadline is next week, magically we can finish the project in one week.

  • I saw this happen at my company.

  • When something is not urgent, we take our time way have lark to be the emergency emergency project today.

  • Get ready everybody.

  • We put 10 people toe work on one project, and in one month we do something we could have done in one week.

  • Thing is, how big companies die.

  • Work expands to the time allowed for it.

  • This'll is a big idea.

  • If you give yourself less time to do something, you will do good work.

  • No hours spent finding the perfect pen.

  • No hours wasted in meetings.

  • No unnecessary work.

  • So instead of finishing something next year, next month or next week remember Parkinson's law.

  • Most likely, we can finish it tomorrow.

  • That's more than a minute.

  • See you tomorrow, my friends.
