Do You Like  A Deadline?


Deadlines are boundaries that help us to adjust and monitor our motivation.

Des and I were talking about this on one of our beach walks recently. I am not partial to goals and Des reminded me how I respond to a deadline. When I had my textile art business, I had lots of deadlines, closing date for an exhibition, set show date, delivery of ordered scarves or other stock. I always met those deadlines. This also reminded me of  what Seth Godin said about shipping in Linchpin and that artists ship. The D – deliver your material on time reminded me of this- sometimes we have to let our babies- they might be an e-book, a program, a teleclass be shipped- yes sometimes it might not be perfect- now remember that is in your eyes 🙂

I know deadlines drive me to complete tasks and goals that otherwise would not get done. I often thrive under the pressure of a deadline. It’s how I get artworks into exhibitions, books published and currently getting a daily article on this blog as a part of the current 31 Day Blog Challenge So now is for me a good time to put some deadlines in place to ensure some projects I have sitting here get shipped before the sun closes on 2010.

The flip side of meeting deadlines usually means something else gets put aside. Sometimes put in a box, sometimes get lost under a pile of to do’s in the intray or sometimes just gets discarded. Maybe they were things that were just not important anyway.

I love deadlines

I like the

whooshing sound

they make

as they fly by.

-Douglas Adams

Do you love deadlines?

Do they drive you crazy or  do they make you cry?
