I hate deadlines, but I admit that without them I would probably not get much done. So you could say it’s a love/hate relationship.
That final crunch can help you a bunch.
The thing you dread is what gets you ahead.
What makes you scream puts you on the team.
What drives you crazy helps you not be lazy.
What prods your ass makes you top of the class.
I deal with my fear, as deadlines near,
And the pressure climbs, by making rhymes. 🙂
