Deadlines are usually there for a good business reason. Miss them at your own risk. Your work is almost always part of a chain that leads to corporate profitability. When you’re late, or miss a deadline completely you’re gumming up the works. That’s why it’s important to meet your deadlines and commitments - especially if you want a promotion. If you find that you’re not going to meet a deadline, tell the person who is counting on you and your work right away. Don’t let the deadline pass without saying anything. This is not only good manners, it helps the other person manager his or her work load. Finally, don’t complain about being micro managed if you miss a lot of deadlines and your boss starts following up with you. That’s his or her job and the price you pay for not being reliable.
