A Task Will Swell

"A task will swell in {perceived} importance and complexity 
in relation to the time allotted for its completion..
If I give you 24 hours to complete a project, 
the time pressure forces you to focus on execution 
and you have not choice 
but to focus on the essentials....
In the end products of a shorter deadline 
is almost inevitably of equal 
or higher quality 
due to greater focus."  

Reading an old favorite and came across this  from The 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris
