Parkinson's Law vs. Porkins' Law

Parkinson's Law:
Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.

Porkins' Law:
Your waist expands to fill the size of your jeans. (So be forewarned when you buy those "one size up" jeans!)

Reversing Parkinson's law can be a great productivity technique. Allot less time to force yourself to get a project done. It's amazing how productive you can be when you don't have time to mess around, procrastinate, or get distracted.

Sadly, the reverse rarely holds true for Porkins' Law. Your waist rarely shrinks to the size of your "tight jeans." You end up just giving yourself a rash...

Take advantage of reversing Parkinson's Law, and be wary of Porkins' Law!

P.S. Yes, I made up the name "Porkins' law" in honor of one of the most blatantly insulting character naming choices ever: Jek Tono Porkins from Star Wars.
