Deadlines. Deadlines. Deadlines.

Observed on a sign …

"God please help me through this totally self-imposed deadline."

I have many times implemented a self-imposed deadline and allowed it to create stress in my life.

Deadlines are good.  But when the deadline prevents me from ensuring that I do what is URGENT AND IMPORTANT first, then it is terrible.

Are you working on things that are URGENT AND IMPORTANT today or are you allowing all of the self-imposed deadlines to rule your schedule?

Perhaps the Time Budget - By the Half-Hour or Time Budget - By The Hour from the TOOLS page will help you take control of your schedule again!

    Joe,

    Thanks….. I was just thinking that I needed something like this.

    Next weekend we are having a birthday party for your soon to be five year old. This will help me and my wife to maximize our efforts for preparing the house and pool.

    With working and family,it leaves only the late evening to get some things done. With the time budget, I can make an effective plan to accomplish little bites all week long. (thus to RELIEVE stress!)

    Thanks,
    travis
