    Multitasking becomes a serious problem with hard set deadlines sometimes.

    I am sure you all have had a required thing to do, and then a million other things come up as well that have precedence at that moment.

    Still I think that deadlines also keep you focused on what you need to accomplish and make you work faster some of the time... especially if you are going over your deadline...

    They don't exactly motivate, but
    they make me work faster.

    deadlines are a very good motivator - i work better under pressure - if im not working under pressure i will keep taking coffe breaks and cigarette breaks and find other things to. If its close to a deadline i will focus on the work.

    Deadline does not really matter. All I do is 10%/day and it will be finished.
