Deadlines are good.
Deadlines keep your clients, your employees, and yourself honest.
Deadlines light the fire under your ass when you need it.
Deadlines let you position your resources where you need them, when you need them.
Some deadlines can be re-negotiated. Some can’t. Make sure you know which ones are which.
Made deadline? You’re a hero and will get hired again. Didn’t make deadline? You might be shown the door instantly.
That is all for now. Must go. Am on a deadline.
