Have you noticed that the people who make things happen in this world value and share the same sense of urgency?
High Achievers work best under a self-determined or externally fixed deadline for achieving objectives. Those who consciously choose not to “sleep at the wheel” realize that regardless of the goal being pursued, they must continually maintain a sense of urgency in order to compete and win.
True greatness is only achieved once we develop a sense of urgency and importance of what we are doing. I mean a sense of urgency to the extent that we feel getting results and achieving our goals is a matter of life and death.
It’s tragically un-hip to procrastinate. A deadline and strong sense of urgency generates energy toward getting results. In short, they drive people to perform. Purposely put yourself in a position where you have to perform!
One of the biggest mistakes people make when trying to achieve a goal is to plunge ahead without establishing a high enough sense of urgency in themselves and others. Communicating urgency is one of the hallmarks of personal and professional leadership.
The Importance of Deadlines!
In an ideal world, behaviour shouldn’t depend on deadlines. Behaviour should depend on our values, and one of the values of all high performing people is a sense of urgency. Deadlines represent commitment, accountability and they create a sense of urgency. A clearly understood deadline, that is shared, agreed upon and committed to is the silver bullet of proactive behaviour. There is nothing like a good old fashioned, it’s got to be done by this deadline that gets people off the pot and into the game.
