Deadlines are mandatory when we race, and optional when we create. But do we really need them? The etymology of deadline is debatable, probably named after lines that did not move in times of war.  

What truly matters is that they force us to arrange chores in order of priority focusing on our goals. They are the perfect aid to say no to non-meaningful goals. 

How many times have you felt compelled to say no, but you ended up accepting a job or an activity because of FOMO? Or I should better refer to it as Fear of Missing Out. 

Thinking that you are being left “out of the loop” can become a problem.  There will always be exciting events happening elsewhere.

It all started waking up at 5 am. The happiness and inner satisfaction to conquer a simple act everyday triggered a cascade of change. I recall it was Ankita Singhal who said “A small change can make a big difference. You are the only one who can make our world a better place to inhabit. So, don’t be afraid to take a stand .”  So be it.
