For the most part, I do not like to work with firm deadlines but the externally imposed ones clearly make me more productive than the ones I impose on myself with utmost flexibility. I did manage to get my office closed despite my secretaries' preference to drag it on indefinitely.
These next few weeks, I have two major talks, one at AKSE Academy next weekend and another in mid-February for Mercy Hospital's Grand Rounds. I have been working on them but the looming presentation date has started to impose a greater measure of focus. AKSE sources are nearing completion with the upcoming week for editing. These next two weeks I need to devote attention to making my slides for Grand Rounds.
