25 laws of life that explain a lot
1. Murphy's Law
Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
According to this principle, if something bad can happen, then it will happen. At the same time, the worst possible situation will happen.
2. Mesquiman’s Law
Never enough time to do a job well. But it is always there to redo everything.
And that happens. Until the last moment, we postpone an important matter, then we cope with it somehow and spend much more on redoing.
3. Law On
Without a smiling smiley or any other obvious sign of humor, it is impossible to joke on sensitive topics so that at least someone will not take it seriously.

4. Observation of Ettore

First, look for the cause of human error, and only then think that the person did something on purpose, out of unkind motives.
8. Pareto's Law
20% of efforts give 80% of the result, the remaining 80% of efforts - only 20% of the result.
The ratio of efforts and results is unequal: 20% of customers bring the company 80% of the profits, and 80% of the time spent on current tasks will bring only 20% of the benefits. And so in any area of life.
9. Parkinson's Law
Work fills the time allotted to it.
You can complete the task in one day, but you have laid a week on it. And you will work on it for a week.
10. Law of Lerman
Any technical problem can be solved if there is enough time and money.

12. Peter's principle
Competent employees, climbing the career ladder, reach their level of incompetence.
According to this principle, sooner or later a person will be in a position with which he cannot cope.
13. The Gamperson Act

When you are late for work, you get stuck in traffic, buses break, you have to walk. But if you decide to take a walk, these buses will pass you one by one.
14. The Fourth Law of Finygla
If the work goes wrong, then any attempt to save the situation will only worsen it.

If a problem requires repeated meetings, they will eventually become more important than the problem itself.
And, perhaps, it will not solve.
19. Law of writing

In the case of emails, of course, everything is simpler. You can then send the second - a lot of time it will not take.
