Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Hi, He observes that work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.

“Oscar Wilde said: ‘Each man kills the thing he loves.’ And it’s true. The mere possibility of getting what we want fills the soul of the ordinary person with guilt. We look around at all those who have failed to get what they want and feel that we do not deserve to get what we want either, We forget about obstacles we overcame, all the suffering we endured, all the things we had to give up in order to get this far. I have known a lot of people who, when their personal calling was within their grasp, went on to commit a series of stupid mistakes and never reached their goal.”

the paragraph above explains a paradoxical situation. this is because there are two separate opinions that tend to contradict each other. First the the statement goes by proposing a fear and guilt of achieving what we want by looking at those who struggled to get what they want but failed. At the same time there is a statement that tries to show that people tend to forget the effort they made to achieve something after they have achieved what they really wanted.

thank you
