Show Notes for Episode 84: "TEM Short: Should Deadlines Be Flexible?"

Andrew Hitz

Listen via:


This TEM Short is in response to my interview with John Beder in Episode 83.

Is a lack of a deadline holding your project back?

Topics Covered:

  • 1:22 - How John had some flexible deadlines throughout the process but had a very hard deadline at the end of the project (with consequences for not meeting it!) which brought it across the finish line
  • 4:09 - How we can apply this to each of our own projects like making a website and why deadlines are important
  • 5:21 - Seth Godin's insistence that any project have a hard ship deadline that will be met no matter what
  • 6:10 - How freeing it is to realize (like John did while making this film) that your best work is still ahead of you
  • 7:30 - Do you have any projects that are floundering because they don't have a specific, immovable deadline for shipping (Spoiler: I do!)
