American writer Rita Mae Brown said, “A deadline is negative inspiration. Still, it’s better than no inspiration at all.”
I live by deadlines. It’s the nature of my job. My work lives and dies by deadlines.
How about you? How are you and deadlines?
Think about the student with a paper due today. The contractor finishing the house. The engineer building a new car. All face deadlines.
You have deadlines too. Some are important. Some aren’t. One deadline is urgent—the moment you breathe your last upon earth. It’s coming.
You don’t want to be unprepared for that moment.
