Benefits of Deadline
Mostly people work in relief and lazily until the deadline approaches. As the deadline is draws nearer, the pressure rises along with negative connotation, and instead of enjoying our work we take it as a burden. Although, deadline causes mental pressure, it increases our productivity, effort if we tend to take deadline in a positive aspect. Let’s see how deadlines can be better if we learn to look at the benefits of deadlines.
- A deadline changes project from a vague to simple, maybe a definite reality. This greatly improves the chance that things will actually get done, even get done on time.
- Work tends to expand to fill the time available for its accomplishment. If you have all day to do something, it will probably take all day to get it done. It you have only one or two hour, you will do it much earlier. That is one big reason why projects should not have open-ended dates.
- If you tell people to drop by sometime, and you will never see them. Ask them to come by next Friday 8:00 pm they probably will. The result of this type of specific deadline is that you will see your friends more often.
- Deadlines also force you to plan better. They automatically cause you to think about what has to be done, how long each part will take, and when the best or most logical starting time would be. If this is done often, you will develop a new way of thinking. You will find it much easier to muster the self discipline necessary to accomplish more in less time. As, a result your personal productivity will become a more valuable worker.
Your positive perception on deadline describes your positive attitude towards everything.
