Sometimes it feels like nagging. Working on a tight deadline but reliant on the input of others. I don’t want my deadline pressures to create stress on anyone else. So what’s a girl to do?
Occasional gentle reminders that become more frequent as the deadline fast approaches.
Imagine my chagrin, when I received a nudge today. How quickly the table does turn. Someone was relying on my input. The original deadline passed last week, and the “drop-dead” deadline (aka the hard submission date) is just days away.
So I stopped what I was doing (sending nudges to the people I needed responses from) and provided my input to the person who nudged me—along with an apology for my delay.
I’m excited to see both projects in print. I just need to finish mine. I have an awesome collaborator that has made so much happen already. We are just waiting for a few more responses.
