I think I work best with deadlines. I've known this, in various forms, for a while. It occurred to me again now as I was following links from LiveJournal. Yes, I was randomly web surfing when I was supposed to be working, without even really thinking about it. Why? Because I have no deadlines. Now, I can work on stuff without having deadlines, but that has to be stuff I'm interested in. What I'm doing now is quite boring, plus I have no deadlines. It also doesn't help that I don't have to worry about keeping up with my co-worker, since I'll look good pretty much regardless of what I do.
