coffee, copious amounts, deadlines, Douglas Adams, news, work, writing
It’s no secret that I’m a news junkie. Even though I left the world of newspapers and copious amounts of coffee some time back, I still get my fair dose of deadline fixes in my current role.
Friday’s are meant to be chilled out and many are usually starting to zone out in preparation for the weekend ahead. Not on my side.
It’s go-go-go from the moment my alarm clock sounds until my day ends; and that time varies.
What is it about deadlines that keep me wanting more?
Douglas Adams said it best: “I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
For me, each deadline is like starting a race. Ready. Steady. Go… Some of my best work has been produced during those adrenaline pumping times.
Those who know me know that one of my pet peeves is missing a deadline. Granted, there will be instances where a deadline is missed, and we should leave way for a degree of flexibility, but for the most part if you’ve committed to something then get your game plan together and get moving.
A missed deadline = an exception and not the norm.
And on that note, let me prepare for my next deadline.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
Stay favoured and fabulous x
