There exists a bromide known as ‘Parkinson’s Law” which simply states that “work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.”

So, does that axiom have any legs? Let we, who have been or are now in the work force, do an examination of conscience as to the validity of that “Law.” In other words, do we in the workplace often take the given time to complete a task when in actuality, the task could be done in half the time? Let we who have been or are now in the work force, answer this question truthfully: did we really need 40 hours a week to complete our job assignments?
