Deadlines, shmeadlines. :-) wether or not one can work structured is a huge gradient and very subjective. I’m 75% chaos and 25% structured. That’s where I feel comfortable and mostly “in the zone”. I tried to get more organized but then I just think about managing chaos rather than getting things done. An approaching deadline is a pressure provider for me that also acts as some sort of distiller.. hard to put in words. It probably forces me to work more intuitively, which usually leads to better results. Obviously this can be stretched into unhealthy territory, but then .. I’m just aiming for “the zone”. Heavily subjective.
