But seriously its a habit I need to break. I have a personal deadline for tomorrow. I’ll post a link to my work once it’s finished. thx 4 the insight. keep on bloggin’ in the free world. ive got a massive list of personal things ive wanted to get done for ages now.. my uni work is the only thing that seems gets my full attention at the mo, think im going to start treating them as the same.. off topic: your Subscribe button still says “subcribe” without an S wow, awesome. Nice catch. Fixing now. Sometimes it’s also necessary for me to have something like a “startline” not only a deadline… E.g. I say “Ok the thing must be ready at thursday and I definetly start on tuesday 10am”… so I can chill the next days and on tuesday 10am I start, no matter what… love this business blog! This advice was the best i’ve gotten on finishing personal projects. Thanks Nick. you rule! Golden, I need to stop taking this for granted on commercial projects and start putting it to use with personal work. Great video! In case you miss the deadline, how should you penalize yourself? Otherwise the deadline is useless! Submit a comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
