Assign an Alive-line

Some people just cannot complete a project unless they have a deadline.  Their Powers of Procrastination are well-developed and they may be easily able to ignore the piles of incompletions or the unfinished artwork.

Some people balk at the idea of a deadline.  Perhaps, like diet, it brings us too close to our mortality and causes the deer in the headlights effect.

If you find yourself unable to complete an art piece, a writing project or some other creative assignment then you need to assign an alive-line.  Make sure you put the end-game date on every calendar you use and see.

Setting an alive-line can serve as the proverbial kick in the butt to revive your project so you can finish.  The great reward of finishing is that…you get to start something new.
