Set a Deadline

I am on the road. Taking a Leadership course for the next week. I look forward to a week of learning and a break at the same time.

I always get more done with deadlines.

Right now, I am in an internet cafe and I only bought a limited amount of time so I am sure I will get everything done because I have the deadline.

I sometimes use that to move me forward on other larger projects. I set a deadline where there might not really be one. This is particularly useful in managing larger projects. Break them down into smaller parts and set deadlines for the smaller parts.

The warehouse move the Woodlawn in Guelph is one of those large projects that needs breaking down into smaller parts.

Out of curiosity - which leadership course are you taking?

I am at a YPO University in Scotland. I trust the quality of YPO events and figure if I am going to spend a week, YPO is proven.
