We all know the power of a deadline. In Robert Greene’s book “The 50th Law”, he talks about what happens when we face extreme deadlines…
“We have all had moments of a harsh deadline where you face real pressure to deliver. What happens is our minds snap to attention. We find the necessary energy because we have to. We pay attention to the details that normally elude us because they might spell the difference between success and failure, life and death. We are surprised at how inventive we become. These moments show us mental power that is generally untapped. In only we could have this every day”.
The good news is you can create situations where you face a harsh deadline and you force yourself to tap into this resourceful side of yourself!
