This thread was really great and has helped me a great deal! Like several others, I was constantly shuffling due dates and invested more time into that than moving NA's forward. As a result of eliminating the due dates, I feel a lot more dynamic, fluid and effective! I am making better choices, moving things foward and not nearly as heady! I find that it really cultivates the feeling of "mind like water". I am using due dates only for those that have an ABSOLUTE due date and they really stand out.
Thanks for the new found freedom - it is a breath of fresh air! It is very liberating to delete all of those meaningless and cluttering due dates.
