Note to self 010 – Parkinson’s law strikes – again!

It may not sound very nice, but the sad fact is that people tend to use up the available time for a task in a lot of situations. Therefore: If you want to be over with the meeting in 30 minutes send out an invitation for only 30 minutes – if you make it 45 minutes in the invitation it will take 45 minutes.
Parkinson’s original quote from 1955 is:

Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.
