Having deadlines is necessary for your business and critical to your success. Deadlines are basically goals with due dates that keep your business moving forward. They should be held sacred and viewed as unchangeable. The magic of deadlines is they require you to focus because they leave no other option.
The problem is, as entrepreneurs, we are our own bosses and generally have no one to answer to when we don’t meet our deadlines. As such, it becomes a tendency to miss our deadlines or continually push them back when we get “busy” or “sick” or “overwhelmed” or “just don’t feel like doing it.” And that is no way to charge forward toward your goals and vision of success.
