Why Deadlines Work

by Dec 8, 2021

Deadlines spur action

What are you looking to accomplish and by when? I know that if I’m not being held accountable, chances are I’ll just spin my wheels. Avoiding the difficulty of sitting down and concentrating on something we know is urgent is something many of us are experts at. Actually committing ourselves to deadlines though is one of the most important and simplest things we can do to improve ourselves. 

Deadlines are something to be dealt with in all aspects of life. If it’s related to health, financial, or family related, deadlines are almost always in play.  What we often lack when it comes to setting deadlines is a way of keeping ourselves true to them. There are any number of reasons to keep kicking the can down the road, however that’s not doing yourself any favors. 

On this episode of Becoming Kings, I break down why we avoid deadlines like they’re a sickness and share real, solid solutions to start attacking instead of running away from them.
