Ahead of the Deadlines
You have the opportunity right now to avoid having to rush to get the job done at the last minute. Go ahead and do it now.
You can eliminate long stretches of resentful, hurried, ineffective efforts from your life. Simply get your work done sooner rather than later.
You can earn yourself time to think, to relax, to be free of deadlines. Just get out far ahead of those deadlines.
It’s better being in control of your time than to be striving to catch up with your obligations. Begin taking care of those obligations as soon as you have them and get them quickly out of the way.
This is your chance to make much more time in your life for doing what you want to do. The sooner you finish what you have to do, the more of that priceless, flexible time you’ll have.
Give your time first to what you have to do. You’ll be giving yourself a whole lot more quality moments to do whatever you love to do.
