THE UN-COMFORT ZONE with Robert Evans Wilson, Jr. Deadlines work Asi I sit here writing this col- umn/against the deadline, I'm rerai~ded of my days as a young advertising copywriter when I occasionally needed a deadline as motiyation to finish a boring proj- ect. The deadline did more than motivate me to finish- more often than not, it was what finally stim- ulated enough creative thinking to move me forward- in other words, it motivated me to think outside of the box. "Thinking outside of the box." Boy, has that phrase become over- used. People are so often telling us that we need to think outside of the box that it has fallen into the realm of cliche. Never-the-less it is still true. Sometimes, however, we need to be put into a box first before we can think outside of it. A deadline is just such a box. I used to believe that the more freedom I had, the more creative I could be. But it doesn't necessarily work that way. Ingenuity needs to be motivated by something, and if the desire to achieve isn't there, then an uncomfortable boundary may work. Have you ever watched a man or a woman with one leg running a marathon or competing in down- hill snow skiing? I have, and every time I'm deeply impressed because I have both of my legs and I can't do either one. I used to wonder why they were able to do so much more than me when I was the one born with the greater advan: rage. Now I can see that the differ- ence is that they were challenged by a boundary and I wasn't. Some of them might even argue that they were the ones born with the greater advantage. Being unable to walk made them uncomfort- able, and conquering their disabil- ity became a powerful motivating factor. They had to get out of that box! Think of creativity as a prisoner trying to bust out of jail. When your resources and opportuni- ties are limited you must become innovative. A good illustration of this is the World War II movie The Great Escape. It is an amazing tale of ingenuity. Men with little to work with escape from a German POW camp. In addition to dig- ging three tunnels without shov- els, they made hand-drawn trav- cling documents and identifica- tion papers that looked authentic enough to pass for ones made on a printing press. Now that was a box to get out off I have enjoyed working for myself most of my adult life. Peo- ple frequently tell me they wish they could be self-employed like I am. They say things like, "If I could just get one client then I could quit my job." My response is always the same, "Until you quit your job, you are never going to find that first cli- ent. There is nothing like the dead- line of a rent or mortgage payment staring you down at the end of the month to motivate you to get out and look for clients." Everyone works under some kind of deadline. They force us to prioritize our responsibilities; they limit procrastination; and they help us achieve our work related goals. But, we often lack them in our private lives. We are not given deadlines to accomplish our most important personal goals and without those boundaries procras- tination can creep in and destroy our best intentions. The trick is to impose a deadline on yourself. But it has to have some teeth to work. Here's how to do it: Write dowj1 your goal. Then set a reasonable date in which you can achieve it. Next, go to your bank or attor- ney and set up an escrow account. Now add the teeth -- put into the account an amount of money that will hurt to lose: $1,000 .,'$10,000 ... $100,000 ... you decide! Set it up so that if you haven't achieved your goal by the deadline then the funds go to a favorite charity.., or make it even more motivating: let the funds go to your worst enemy! Not ready to try that? Then try the buddy system. Pair up with a friend and each of you take respon- sibility to follow up on the other one. You can get together once a week and check on each oth- er's progress. If goals aren't being met, then nag each other into the UnComfort Zone!
