The word deadline causes a wide range of emotions in people.

Mostly people are filled with anticipation or fear, but it does deliver results.

Without a deadline projects, work, tasks could go on forever or much longer than anticipated.

So if we decide that deadlines are at the very least a way of insuring that work gets done on time. Can we alter the way that we use them?

Do they just have be used for work and involve anxiety?

Quite often when I need to make a decision I set a deadline.

I may have no information about the subject or the time to research it at that moment,

but as far as I am aware it always produces a result.

The mind is much more capable than we think, fed with the right input.
