Parkinson's Law

Make deadlines for every task

Don’t let any task, no matter how small, have an undefined deadline. Undefined deadlines create undefined game plans. Encourage momentum by tagging everything with a due date. Play a little game, challenge yourself to answer all emails in less than 5 minutes. The next day try to do it in under 3.
