Getting Prolific, Day 50: Inspiration Is Perishable. Start Now.

Frontloading, putting a greater proportion of my activity at the beginning of the process, insures me against snowballing of any of the downstream issues of a project.

But I’ve had numerous clients and coworkers where deadlines very much brought them alive. That gust of pressure invigorated them to do great work.

You think you may not be ready, that you’ll do it at a more convenient time. But you don’t choose the time. The time chooses you. Either you seize what may turn out to be the only chance you have, or you decide you’re willing to live with the knowledge that the chance has passed you by.

What type of tension motivates you to finish your work? What inner emotional unrest helps you finish projects you’re proud of?
