  15. 15. Enter Parkinsons Law: In 1955 Cyril N. Parkinson wrote in an issue of the Economist... "work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion"
  16. 16. In Other Words... If you give yourself 9-5 to “work” on a set of tasks... ... it’ll take you 8 hours to get it done.
  17. 17. Using Parkinson’s Law To Your Advantage...
  18. 18. First... You need to question why you work the certain times during the day that you do. What makes you mentally pick “8 hours”?
  19. 19. Second... Pick a different number of hours (ideally fewer) that you’d rather work during the day. And start with working that many hours for 2 days a week.
  20. 20. Third... (the key) Write down 5-10 things you’d do with those extra hours during the day. (in my mind, this is the key. Here’s why...)
  21. 21. What Can You Do With That Extra Time? More time with family More time for hobbies Reading great books Volunteering at a charity Writing on stuff you’re passionate about Working on your “big idea” More creative time away from the “weeds” Mentoring Get active and work out
