Finish what you start

One of the most recurrent things in the life of a college student is working against deadlines. When all those things that you have been procrastinating all week had piled up and need to be delivered the next day, you find that with your back against the wall, you can do only one thing, to put the work required to do so. It is in these days that you seem to surpass your previously set limits for productivity, staying awake till you finish and grinding your teeth while pushing yourself to the completion of the task. Then, you go back to doing the same thing, sending the thought of action to a further day in which you again will be forced to muscle your way to the finish line. You might not have noticed, though these reminders of what we need to do for a particular day have more importance than you think in getting you to do things. That's why many of the most productive people in the world use these dates, whether in a concrete or imaginary form, to get all their work done, and that's why in this article I'll talk about the benefits they can bring to our lives, explaining why you feel more motivated to do things using this method. Let's begin:

Why Deadlines are so effective?

The main element behind the functioning of Deadlines is a negative emotion: Fear. Whether It is the fear of refusal for not being able to deliver, the fear of something going wrong If we don't act or a life full of misery and procrastination are all a source of motivation for us to actually push through our boundaries when performing. For example, one of the most recurrent techniques that people use to set imaginary deadlines for themselves is to tell someone in advance of something that they hadn't done, in this way asking the other person to hold them accountable for what they are supposed to deliver.

Now that we know what propels us to act with a specific day in mind to finish, we can talk about the many advantages that the usage of deadlines can bring to your life:

Holds you responsible

If you make yourself responsible for a task that has a negative connotation in the case of not being accomplished, you find that you'll be much more careful to put the necessary effort to complete It. By having in mind that someone's well being or expectations are with you, you'll have all the components you need to actually get things done.

Lets you define a time and a place

One of the many reasons why many people don't actually get things done is because they don't set out the details for completion, neither the day or the place in which It'll be delivered. By setting out the conditions in which something is to be made, you'll have much more control over the plan and will be more conscious about the hours spent.

Avoids procrastination in the long run

If you knew that tomorrow would be your last day, you would be much more productive with your time, doing all those things that you should be doing. However, you don't actually know when that day will come, so you are more prone to keep pushing things for future situations, at the end of the week just not doing them. Setting out deadlines prevents this, as It will keep you a reminder that indicates that you can't turn the other way forever, so you'll put more energy to dedicate to that particular activity.

I hope that with the information presented in this article I could have presented you with some valuable insights as to why deadlines are so important, indicating you the many advantages that having a period of deliverance can bring you and motivating you to use them more frequently. Thank you for your support and good luck!
