No Deadlines vs. DeadlinesPosted by Chris Pollinger
Most of our business lives revolve around getting the job done in a timely manner. This means deadlines, accountabilities, and performance measures. Deadlines are great, because they are motivating. On the other hand, there may be a different approach to accomplishment, a different way to get the job done, than to be “guided” by deadlines. Lack of deadlines is difficult to describe. For me it occurs when I spend my days writing what my intuition tells me to write, working on projects that bring me joy and talking with people who make me laugh. Furthermore, I make a really good living. Deadlines? Sure, I have them, but the fewer deadlines I have, the more I earn.
