I’m not much for laws. Well, any more laws than necessary. This said, I stumbled upon a law that I happen to agree with just this week.
How do we have so much more productivity tools at our disposal today, but still only as productive as we were a generation ago. In fact, in some ways, less productive.
We have multi-tasking solutions, phones not attached to walls, untold capabilities of software. These tools should be able to afford us to cut hours, if not days out of our daily grind. Why then, are we grinding away at our jobs in such an unending pace?
Parkinson’s Law is part of the answer. The correlation of work tasks expanding to the time available to complete them. Frustrating, but true. I’ll try to believe that work product is of higher quality.
