Without a deadline you can exhaust yourself and still not arrive at any meaningful accomplishment. A deadline compels you to prioritise and to expend your best efforts in the most meaningful direction.
With a deadline, you are constantly reminded of how valuable and precious your time is. You’re able to see resources and opportunities that would otherwise remain hidden.
A deadline encourages you to do the best you can with what you have. And that’s a skill that reliably leads to great accomplishment again and again.
Give yourself a deadline. And get the job done sooner rather than never.
