“Work expands to fill the time available for its completion.”
C. Northcote Parkinson
In 2011, as I was reaching the end of my working years, I decided to go part time. It was wonderful! All of a sudden, I had extra days to work on my bazillion projects here at the ranch. It was great for a while, but it was only a matter of time before those extra days also gave me the opportunity to think up even more projects. Soon, my project list, instead of getting smaller, was actually expanding!
Then in 2015, I retired. That also was wonderful! I once again had extra days every week to work on projects. Guess what happened next. Yup. The project list got even longer! And now I’m out of options for adding more days to the week unless I start making my own calendar with a ten-day week!
