LASTMINUTETHINGS.

LASTMINUTETHINGS.

We’ve been lectured since childhood that whenever you schedule your tasks, you should give yourself some cushion. Get all the things arranged and sorted out well before time, mark the due dates, take notice of the important events and try to get done with things before the actual deadline so that you can deal with changes and last minute emergencies and polish the material. But, we all love our last minute lifestyle where we don’t have plans and things just happen, for example, last minute assignments, last minute revisions, notices, submissions and attendance. Things are forgotten and then picked up again if we’re lucky; but usually we end up doing them 30 minutes before the deadline and submitting them 4 seconds before it’s over, that’s how we do WORK typically, even if we are given two months, we’ll do it in the last three days. Ever noticed how creative that last minute work is? how productive the ideas are? and how impressive the final product is? Even the jokes are funnier… It’s like a whole new version of you has been activated that keeps up in those minutes of pressure and panic and somehow extracts the best possible ideas and explores the possibilities which we usually don’t consider, and that’s what defines our success. That last minute is the mood. The mood when you are actually willing to work, to compete and to prove that you are not going to be the last guy this time. You think of all the ways of doing a particular thing and with the clock ticking and pressure building, you ace it, because the finest hour lasts only a minute and a half.
