Ever have a task without a deadline?
It will haunt your todo list. Sitting there (sometimes forever), never getting finished.
Without a deadline, there is no incentive to get a task to done.
Always Set a Deadline
A task without a deadline isn’t a “todo,” rather it’s a “want to do.”
Just like meetings stretch to fill the allotted time, tasks will expand to the time given to them.
“To ensure a task gets done, always set a deadline.”
Without a specific line drawn in the sand, there is no incentive to complete a task by a specific time.
Tasks without a deadline often become “forever tasks” that never get priority in your day.
Ensure your most important todos always have a specific “to be completed by” date.
Make your priorities real by always setting a hard deadline… and stick to it.Question: Do you set deadlines for all of your important tasks? You can leave a comment by clicking here.
