Let’s duke it out in the comments.
Do you think that margin allows for creativity because restraints aren’t as much in the foreground?
Or do you think that deadlines foster creativity through the pressure of having a deliverable and not being able to procrastinate?
I’ve thought about this myself. Okay, I have argued about this with myself. I feel like Jekyll and Hyde.
This has been on my mind as of late, especially after my Lead Pastor and I tried an experiment where we dedicated only four hours to the concept and execution of a video illustration for Sunday. You can read all about it and see the video yourself right here.
And to be honest, I am not sure which I believe yet – I love margin but I appreciate deadlines and I just don’t think that both of them can coexist (at least not in the same amounts) in any given work environment. So one has to be better, right? I mean, that wouldn’t be fun if there wasn’t a loser.
When you drop a line in the comments, please mention your field or what you do – I am curious if we will see any patterns.
Less of me typing and more of you typing – Go!
