"Empower your dreams with deadlines."--H. Jackson Brown
Why is it when given an assignment to get something done by a certain time most of us are able to accomplish something. Get that to me by Tuesday-no problem. We need the newsletter to the printer by Friday- okey dokey! Mother in law's gonna be her Saturday, gotta clean!-Whew! Got it done.
First deadline-Finish first draft by June- um, well...I was injured, Hey! I get a free pass! (car accident/surgery) Okay, it was done by Christmas.
Second draft- Chinese New Year- hmmmm, that goal wasn't realistic, was it?
Synopsis-(Cause I need a break from drafting)-Easter? YIKES! Here comes Easter!
Note to self: Need new deadlines. Did we say Christmas?
PS-I don't know who H. Jackson Brown is but I'd like to know what his deadlines are. (or were?)
