DEADLINE is phenomenon, that in many cases describes presence and to some level narrates the future. At the expense of mental health and overall wellbeing, we are pushed by our environment into endless productivity. Negative, even neurotic character of deadline, which is final and unchangeable, is generating pressure and anxiety of inevitable. Deadline though doesn´t have to necessarily include only negative connotations. If we know the final date, goals and impacts, we have a chance to prepare ourselves in time and responsibly face challenges, that are in front of us. And when the deadline is finally met, we can enjoy relief, a sense of accomplishment, euphoria and well-deserved rest.
