Everybody seems to want to get more done, including me.
I know for a fact that I will run out of life before I accomplish everything I want to accomplish…or will I? (there’s whole other email about “wants” that I will leave dormant for now)
Is there a way to get more done in less time?
History shows that some people do in fact accomplish more than others.
So what’s the secret?
Secret Sauce Numero Uno: Parkinson’s Law
“work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion”
Secret Sauce Number Two: Pareto Principle (close enough to a law)
“roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes”
If you ruthlessly and relentlessly apply these to your life, your life will expand and multiply.
– Get more done.
– Do less of the unimportant.
We will delve into the productivity “scam” tomorrow.
Until then see what you can apply Parkinson’s Law or Pareto’s Principle to.
