I was in this situation just these last few days. Suddenly I had to draft so many agreements for 4 different clients. All of them gave me their instructions on Wednesday last week. The nature of all the agreements were different. The transactions were totally different. All of them wanted their agreement urgently. 2 words: kelam kabut!!
But don't you find that when you work under pressure, knowing you have a dateline, with the adrenaline rush, you usually produce your best work! I find this to be so true. Even as a student, it was the last minute assignments (written the night before the assignment is due) which gave >80%. Maybe its the way the brain works... My brain anyway... (Or maybe its my excuse for putting things right to the last minute!) :-)
Well, I enjoy my work, seriously. I love drafting new agreements especially challenging ones. I'm now in the middle of drafting a Concession Agreement (extremely challenging) but the dateline is not fixed yet so I'm finding it so difficult to finish it... Sigh.. Must be my brain working against me... Help!!
Good luck to everyone who is working on a dateline!
