One of our primary sources of tension and stress.

If you are submitting a project or scholarship application, and the deadline approaches, everyone pushes their review to the last minute and stress.

You stress because you already know the likelihood of something going wrong as the deadline approaches.

You may feel tired and finished, but without deadlines, little gets finished. Deadlines are not dead-ends.

Deadlines regulate our work and to a certain extent our life. If you embrace them, you feel the tension, which is different than stress. Tension builds on excitement, expectation, hope. Tension makes you pay attention to details and continuously learn from mistakes.

Deadlines do not cause tension and stress, but choices. You only need to learn how to make the right ones.
