The problem with internal deadlines

The problem with internal deadlines

Most people work best with hard, external deadlines. A deadline requires you to focus because you have to deliver.

But when we create arbitrary due dates for ourselves, we tend to continually push them back when we get busy or sick or don't feel like doing it, even if we know they will propel us toward achieving our goals.

Creating external accountability

You must hold your deadlines to yourself just as firmly as you would to others. The key is creating external accountability for internal deadlines.

We often put milestones off by months or even years. And putting your internal deadlines on the back burner will keep you from growing. You may rationalize your excuses, but it can have huge implications for your business or career.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
