Deadlines can be a powerful motivating force for you – if you embrace them with courage and tenacity.
The closer a deadline is in time, the more power it builds inside you.
Your character determines if you will unleash this power so you can do what is required to meet or beat your deadline.
I use deadlines to force me to focus my intellect, skills and creativity to get it done.
I strive daily to beat my deadlines, big and small, if only to prove to myself that I can.

KEY: Make your deadlines uncomfortably close.
Go from “Yeah, I can do it” to “I’m not sure I can”.
You can, and you will, because your best work is done outside your comfort zone.
What you’ll discover, just as I have over the course of writing and publishing 50 books, is that you are capable of far more than you think you are.
Apply the correct pressure to focus your entire being on the task at hand.
To challenge yourself so you can see what you’re truly capable of, take my 5-Minute Writing Challenge and see what is possible when you’re force yourself in that magical flow state we creatives call The Zone.
