Life Lesson: Set quick deadlines, execute, on to the next one

Parkinson’s Law refers to the fact the people complete a task based on how much time they have.  Whether someone has one week or one month to complete an assignment they are going to use the full amount of time given to them.  Most people will not turn an assignment they have a month to complete several weeks early.  When it comes to what needs to be completed in your life set quick deadlines.  Execute on the deadlines and set your focus on your next mission critical task.  Ironically, this way of thinking will likely cause you to continue to put far deadline tasks off.  However, that’s okay because at least you are intentionally zoning in on things that matter today.
