A list of eponymous laws

Includes Murphy’s Law, Godwin’s Law.

And Parkinson’s Law: Work expands to fill the time allotted to it.

My two favorites:

Cunningham’s law: “The best way to get the right answer on the internet is not to ask a question, it’s to post the wrong answer.”…

The Asimov corollary to Parkinson’s law: “In ten hours a day you have time to fall twice as far behind your commitments as in five hours a day.”

Also: How to help someone when they’re anxious – ask if they want empathy or a solution. And Isaac Asimov’s key to being prolific – he wrote 468 books, starting with Pebble in the Sky in 1950 and ending with “Magic,” in 1996, four years after his death.
