A week of deadlines.

 

Ellington

This weekend is the Breathe Christian Writers Conference in Grand Rapids. I help out with this conference and it is a highlight of my career. Between now and when the conference begins on Friday, I have a list of things to accomplish. Posts to write, church responsibilities to attend to, a house to run. I have the honor of presenting a workshop and need to practice and put together a cool handout.

I was looking at my calendar and thought to myself, “If I only had more time”.

But then I remembered this quote from Duke Ellington (legendary jazz musician). “I don’t need time. What I need is a deadline.”

How true. How true. Do-boo-be-dooo.

So, in light of that, I’m going to aim for my deadlines (later today, tomorrow, the weekend).

The deadline calls. Its voice is good at giving a nudge to my creativity.

Here we go.

Have any deadlines you need to meet?
