There’s Nothing More Powerful than a Deadline

People like to say “there’s nothing more powerful than an idea.”
That’s bullshit. Ideas are worthless on their own.

Action is what matters, and deadlines are how action gets done.

There’s nothing more powerful than a deadline.

Use deadlines to your advantage. Be specific about where and when you’ll get things done. Put deadlines and actions on your calendar. Get other people involved so your deadlines have consequences.

Don’t be afraid of deadlines. Instead, learn to use them to your advantage, to turn those precious ideas into the actions that really matter.
