    Description

    In the tradition of Charles Duhigg’s The Power of Habit, a wise and fascinating book that shows us how “we can make deadlines work for us instead of the other way around” (The Wall Street Journal).

    Perfectionists and procrastinators alike agree - it’s natural to dread a deadline. Whether you are completing a masterpiece or just checking off an overwhelming to-do list, the ticking clock signals despair. Christopher Cox knows the panic of the looming deadline all too well - as a magazine editor, he has spent years overseeing writers and journalists who couldn’t meet a deadline to save their lives. After putting in a few too many late nights in the newsroom, he became determined to learn the secret of managing deadlines. He set off to observe nine different organizations as they approached a high-pressure deadline. Along the way, Cox made an even greater discovery: these experts didn’t just meet their big deadlines - they became more focused, productive, and creative in the process.

    An entertaining blend of “behavioral science, psychological theory, and academic studies with compelling storytelling and descriptive case studies” (Financial Times), The Deadline Effect reveals the time-management strategies these teams used to guarantee success while staying on schedule: a restaurant opening for the first time, a ski resort covering an entire mountain in snow, a farm growing enough lilies in time for Easter, and more. Cox explains how to use deadlines to our advantage, the dynamics of teams and customers, and techniques for using deadlines to make better, more effective decisions.

    "George Newbern narrates this enlightening audiobook with brisk pacing that makes it fun to hear and easy to absorb. His rich timbre combines well with his seemingly endless supply of phrasing options to make his engagement with the author's message sound genuine." (AudioFile Magazine)

    Good story but totally non sequitur

    The goes long stories that are nice but totally unrelated to the subject. After almost 2 hours in, I asked myself: What was this book about ?

    Create deadlines; the earlier the better

    The book is very engaging with the varied stories. I'd listen again and take notes. The scaled robotics chapter was the least interesting. A toss up between Jean Georges restaurants and the Air Force as the most interesting.

    couldn't get past 2nd Chapter

    too much irrelevant story telling and just went off in tangents that had nothing to do with subject matter. I kept waiting for the narrator to get back on topic but instead he went deeper into the rabbit hole. I gave up and deleted from my library.

    what Is this book?

    the book is supposed to be about deadline yet only the beginning and end chapters bring up deadline and it's only surface level. very disappointing
