The Four Steps To Apply Parkinson’s Law

  1. Time log your work: Using a time-tracking app, log the work that you do and how much time it takes in the real world.
  2. Outline your project goals: Have a clear vision for what you want to do. Having a vague idea of work makes you set long deadlines. Focus on what’s really important and add features later.
  3. Prioritize the tasks: If we are not smart with the limited time we have and prioritize our tasks, we would not be able to complete projects on time.
  4. Set a timeline: Have an actionable timeline that defines what will be done in a task, by whom and by when. Using insights from your time log you can allot time blocks to the tasks.
