Give Me More Lifelines. Not Deadlines.

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditI’ve lived most of my life under deadlines.  Many I set for myself.

Most of us live under some type of pressure to meet a deadline. While deadlines are beneficial for accomplishing things we set out […]
