Over the Dandruff

Thoughts we often overlook

15. Deadlines

Deadlines. Just the word alone gives me the creeps.

Some have the ability to crank out their best work just before the deadline is up (I’m jealous). For many of us our best ideas come when our mind wonders, but it’s a time-consuming process.

Don’t get me wrong, obviously deadlines are necessary or nothing would get done. It’s the time constraints that really grind my gears. I’ve written about time and it’s invisible omnipresence. It’s a crazy concept that keeps us organized yet causes an unprecedented amount of chaos.

While hard deadlines serve an important purpose, I believe that a little flexibility can go  along way. That extra fifteen minutes meandering around the park could spark an idea that can make your work amazing

So, when you find yourself between a rock and a deadline keep this in mind:

“Creativity is not inspired by the pressure of time but by the freedom, the playfulness and the fun.”
