Creating Deadlines- How To Not Let Your Goals and Projects Slip Away

by- Tom Kubrak

Did you just have another project not get completed?

Yup a lot of us have been in your shoes. Remember when you had all the energy in the world to do it and you just thought that nothing would stop you from completing it?

Yeah… I think we all can relate to that.

That time will slip away. Just like the “love stage,” in a marriage, a few years after getting married.

Why Deadlines?

Without deadlines we are hoping that the wind will blow in the right direction at the exact moment for us to complete what we want.

If we rely on the wind for our goals and projects then we won’t get much completed.

The wind is erratic and unpredictable. Comparing that back to us, if we don’t use deadlines then the project or goal we are working on will be just as chaotic.

Think of setting a deadline like a sail on a ship. If we have the sail set right it will use the wind and take you to where you need to be. If you don’t even have a sail well…

Lets just hope and pray you get to land alive.

Resetting A Deadline

If you don’t complete what you wanted by the deadline you set then it’s imperative to make another deadline or the project is at risk of failure.

There is something to be said about letting ideas sit and to not rush the process. But here’s the thing. That’s an idea.

When you have solidified your ideas and are ready to take action it’s time to set some deadlines and use that deadline to push yourself to complete what you have set out to do.
