This is one deadline that I do not intend missing as I suggested the topic!

I am usually working trying to meet, beat and put behind me deadlines. Mostly I do achieve the target, sometimes it beats me.

I do take liberties with some deadlines—like my LBC blog because I know that you will understand.

In other cases, it is my jam you see—the husband keeps me supplied with bread and butter. My work is to bring in jam money to indulge myself and mine!!

Deadlines very often in my life get preponed—then I am in trouble.

One simple fact that most people would agree is that ‘If it were not for the last minute, things wouldn’t get done!’

    My problem is that I’m a little bit of a procrastinator, and do work well under pressure. Those two traits spell disaster when trying to meet a deadline!

    How true that the last minute is the saving grace usually!


  4. While I try to be punctual sometimes it just doesn’t happen. I do not, however, stress over it as in my life a missed deadline is the small stuff – and I learned long ago not to sweat the small stuff. Unless of course it’s paying the electric bill.

    Love it, “If it were not for the last minute, things wouldn’t get done.” Especially because it’s true. Is this your saying, Padmini?

    Blessings – Maxi
