“I don’t need time …”

A great quote from Duke Ellington, courtesy of The Execupundit:

I don’t need time. I need a deadline.

That’s so horribly true for me. Without a deadline time drags and tasks bloat to fill the day.

I understand Douglas Adam’s delicious quote …

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

…but I can never quite subscribe. Deadlines will be met, but sometimes you need a hit of adrenaline,cortisol and caffeine to get you there.
