The Perils of Parkinsons Law: Why Entrepreneurs Shouldnt Overestimate their Time
- Parkinson’s Law states that however much time you give yourself for a project, it will take that exact amount of time
- Entrepreneurs tend to overestimate the amount of time they have for a task and thus it takes them longer to complete it
- Most people don’t actually work 70-80 hour weeks as they may think, because they are inefficient
- People operate better when there is pressure, such as the night before a pop quiz in school.
