Douglas Adams once famously said, “I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”

But how to do you deal with deadlines?

I think the key to dealing with deadlines is the ability to forego the pleasure of the moment.

That's a fancy way of saying "kill procrastination".

Suffer the pain of discipline now to avoid the agony of regret later. You'll also start coming across as much more professional because you'll hit your deadlines and actually show up on time.
