[#193, 195, 199-200, verbatim except that I have trimmed my own #195]

193. Howie Menckel Posted: December 15, 2008 at 09:16 PM (#3029962)
It's funny, on my job, different people are given different 'deadlines'.

Let's say all the work is REALLY due at noon on Friday.
Some might be told noon Wed, some noon Thurs, some 9 pm Thurs, and a few can be told the correct "noon Friday."

The goal being, all the work is submitted on time - or in some cases, seemingly late, but not really.

I don't know why life has to work like that.

Can we institute different 'deadlines' for different voters?

... the tactic is at least an open secret, maybe even public. And yet the tactic works, at least it works a little. [Yes, confirmed by HM]

Regarding 196 Howie, I do much better on a get it done today type deadline, than on a get it done in 3 weeks type deadline, especially if it's only a couple of hours of work that needs to be done over the 3-weeks.

I say this in all seriousness - any tips on how to get better at that? And I don't mean the 'just do it' type of advice, that doesn't really seem to be working so well.

I've got a Franklin planner (even took the one-day class), I understand time management, etc.. Generally I don't miss deadlines, I'm very good about that, but I definitely bump up against them more often than I should. Would like to fix that.

I struggle with that myself. Very hard to eliminate distractions especially when you feel that you have time to be distracted. I've considered incentives-based motivations, but have been unable to enforce it upon myself - how do I become my own judge, jury and executioner?

Some theorists would say that you need to hire or contract with someone else. Maybe a barter arrangement: You execute me; I execute you.

(I suppose this will appear as #202 with my quotation from #193-200 as #201 --not displayed now even after I refresh the page.)

I dunno about you guys, but I need to look at my ballot and try to remember what the hell I was thinking.
