I think there is a misunderstanding here. Deadlines can be set for you - or imposed (in addition to the things you describe pm133, a micro-manager might also do this or it may simply depend on the level of responsibility you have in your job). Deadlines can also be jointly negotiated. Mine were jointly negotiated to enable me to get timely feedback from my supervisors who are all very busy. Without deadlines (set for you or jointly set), the world would probably fall apart!

To be fair there is no misunderstanding on my part at all TQ. This thread has been a classic case of someone jumping all over my posts without having the decency to actually properly read what i posted before doing so.
This was never a discussion about whether deadlines were necessary. At no point did I say they were not needed.
It was about who was the appropriate person to set them.
I say it must be you at this stage of your career but clearly you are welcome to reject that advice without offence on my part.

Anyway, my advice is as above. It's maybe time to move on.

It wasn't. It was about whether it was going to be problematic for me to move a load of pre-arranged deadlines.

I agree!
