“Sometimes uber tight timelines can create extraordinary and unexpected breakthroughs.
First, YOU get fired up and focused in a way that’s outside of your day-to-day rhythm. You tap into a new level determination that can have a positive, domino effect on other projects too. That’s called momentum, baby!
Second, you put yourself in a growth mindset. Your only objective is learning, creativity and experimentation (vs. perfectionism). This is key if you’re someone who’s committed to constantly evolving, consistently producing and staying at the top of your game.
Finally, if you work with others, nothing spikes motivation, innovation, and camaraderie like figuring out a new collective challenge in a very small window of time.
So do yourself a favour. Think about something you’ve been meaning to do or try — whether it’s in your business or life. Got a thing or project? Good.
Could you spark a breakthrough by giving yourself a crazy tight timeline to make it happen? I bet you could. And honestly, the worst thing that could happen is really… nothing.
You’ll either hit your goal, or you’ll fall short.
Either way, you’ll be a whole lot closer to the finish line than you are right now. And if you stay grounded in a growth-mindset (NOT being a perfectionist), you’ll learn a ton along the way.”
