Whilst I appreciate the principle of “deadlines” I am not sure whether I like the idea of panicking and working/creating from nervous energy.
Although I am sure it is better than creating nothing at all.
How much does the love of what we do drive our productivity? I mean loving the process, the shaping the creating, the finding and the discovering.
When we work this way “finishing” can almost be like grieving.
We get nervous when we focus on the finish line (our ill defined notion of success) rather than dwelling in the beauty of creating.
Don’t think about the end; just stay in the moment.
