Deadlines. We all have them. How we deal with them is up to each of us. Some of us hide from them, pretending they don’t exist, however they just loom over our heads until they are right above us, pressing down with incredible weight. Some of us get with right on whatever it is so we more than meet the deadline. We end up well ahead of the game. In those cases the deadline seems to have little weight on us.
Now life might be interesting without deadlines, but what would we really get done if we didn’t have to get it done by a specific time? How many things would just pile up and never get looked at or dealt with? So yes we need them, perhaps not too many of them and maybe, just maybe we need to figure out how to manage them a little better as far as assigning them or doing the work to get them met.
Speaking of deadlines, I’m pretty sure I have something that needs to be done, but I can’t remember what it is was because I just pushed into the later pile. And today my later pile is rather large!
