Finding Time by Viewing Deadlines Through Fresh Eyes

Posted on May 2, 2012, under Time and Energy, Time Priorities.

Finding time to actively welcome and appreciate each moment can liven up your day.  And something as simple as changing how you view deadlines can help.

So, if you feel haunted by the upcoming red circles on your calendar, how about trying a fresh way of working with them?  Approaching your deadlines differently and concluding your tasks in a timely manner definitely regenerates your Priority Power™.

Let’s start with the basics in your approach to your deadlines.  First and foremost, “deadlines” sound so … dead.  I prefer to think of them as “due dates”, instead.

What a positive re-framing of the concept.  Each completed task not only marks the end of something – it also “births” new possibilities!

Notice how planning for “due dates” can help you focus with anticipation, not dread. This powerful-yet-simple renaming encourages you to stay on task and also to think ahead to the next chapter of your work.

When your goal is something that you view as positive, then obstacles (including distractions that appeal to you) become impediments that keep you from something you desire.  Each time a temptation threatens your success, it becomes easier to steer clear.  And procrastination becomes less of an issue, too – because you have prioritized your projects, charted a destination and developed a clear and positive path to follow to success.
