If you are getting stressed over a deadline, consider that you might instead be getting stressed over a goal.
Goals and deadlines are not the same thing, but we sometimes think they are. We are sometimes told they are.
Goals and deadlines can be changed. Maybe only one. But if someone tells you that neither can be changed and this makes your life much harder, then maybe the problem is neither the goals nor the deadlines, but the person who has mistaken you for a slave.
If you are simply stressed and can’t pin it down to either a specific goal or a specific deadline, then consider you might need to enjoy napping in a pleasant place.
