My family is at a last minute high tea and gaming party without me.
I was invited too but I have to finish this stupid report due Monday that I didn’t get the data for until yesterday afternoon.
I hate last minute deadlines.
My coauthor’s all, “Last minute deadlines are the only way I ever get anything done.”
I HATE them.
I like getting my work done between the hours of 8am and 5pm.
and outside of that only if I WANT to, not because there’s some last minute I’m scrambling deadline
because I always screw up when I’m scrambling
(I probably screw up when I’m not too, but I find and fix those screw ups in time.)
(with nobody the wiser)
Also scrambling negatively affects my sleep (guess who woke up at 5am?)
How do you feel about deadlines? Do they mess you up or do they increase your productivity? Do you get things done ahead of time when you have all the bits and pieces or are you always scrambling?
