Why the Deadline is Still Good

I had this thought last night after I wrote about all of my fabric woes and the deadline that is fast approaching -

If I didn't have this deadline, I would not have called 3 out of the 4 sales reps yesterday.

The deadline gave me the motivation to push through feelings of uncertainty and smallness and uncomfortableness.  It forced me to do NOW what I might never have done.  And maybe none of them will end up giving me the fabric I need, but I learned something from each one.
