Meet John. John is a parliamentary sketch writer. A rather brilliant one, but that’s subjective (if not true!). Look at how he summarise Parkinson’s Law. Rather good turn of phrase, isn’t it?

What one thing gets in the way of you doing your job?

Me. If you give me four days to do a job, I can guarantee that job will take four days. If you tell me I have four hours, then it will take four hours. Without deadlines, I’ve often wondered if I would ever leave the house.

Can relate.
