Opportunity to do other activities

If you meet your deadline early, it will give you an opportunity to do other tasks. These tasks can either be work related or not. What I’ am trying to say is that once you finished your deadline early you will have more time to spend. This time can either be spent to bond with your family or additional time for research on how you can improve your work. You can also use the extra time to plan ahead of your schedule. You can also use your extra time to advance on your work and adjust your deadline allowing you to set the deadline for your other work to be moved as well. You will be able to finish your writing project earlier than expected without sacrificing the quality of your work.

Achieve other goals

If your deadline is met, then you achieve your goal. Once achieving your goal you set another goal to accomplish. In the event that you finish your deadline, you can move on to the next step of your plan allowing you to finish more of your goals. Your goal will be the result of your hard work. It will provide you how much you have accomplished in your writing project and what are the things to accomplish in your work. Setting up deadlines to achieve your goals is nice. You will see how much your progress is and how much you have attained as a writer doing his writing project.

Helps in managing time

If you have a set deadline, it will help you manage your time. Good time management is a requirement for most writers. With your valued time, you can plan on how to spend it. Your time can either be used in other writing projects related to your work or you can spend your time for self-development in improving your skills in writing. Managing your time is a crucial skill that writers must possess to attain good quality of your work. It also boosts your professionalism if you are working with a boss or a publishing company. Managing your time also helps you plan ahead of time especially of you are a writer of a specific book for a targeted reading audience.

Increase professionalism

As mentioned in the previous tip, setting up and finishing a deadline gives your boss a good impression about you. Finishing your work on a set deadline shows how good you are in your work. It also allows you to have more work to be assigned by your boss if you finish your deadline on time. A set deadline increases professionalism because you are forced to finish your work in time while displaying good quality of your work. Quality of your work can always be measured on how nice or how beautiful your finished work is.
