Day 375: Drive Your Success: Use Deadlines as Trustworthy Allies in Your Writing

Deadlines are a necessary evil, because they force you to make tough decisions and deliver results.

-Andrew Yang

There is a clear and direct connection between setting and meeting deadlines and your published book.

The deadline – more accurately a series of deadlines – is how you guarantee your dream of writing a book becomes your reality.

Without a deadline, something will always be more important than writing.

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1 emphasizes the importance of timing and the need to focus on one thing when it’s time is at hand.

Your deadlines may appear daunting yet they are essential elements of your writing journey. Embrace them as trusted allies who keep you on track.

Deadlines demand results. When you meet a deadline, you have a page, a chapter, or even a complete draft to show for it, so embrace this tool as a trusted ally and it will serve you well.

When you meet a deadline, celebrate this small success.

Every completed deadline moves you one step closer to your goal. So with every milestone you achieve celebrate that small success because, without it, you can’t achieve your big success.
