I was watching the news, and it was talking about how brides try to lose weight to fit into their dream dress. This can, of course; be applied to anything. For example, when Tom announced the stencyl jam 2012, It really forced me out of a lazy slump and make me work my ass off. If deadlines don't help you, tell me why.
Depends on how important it is. If it has anything to with money and fees, I try to get that in way before the deadline.

I understand. I like to do stuff when the deadline is weeks away. Game jams seem kinda scary for me, because I can't work well with people under pressure and to make something in one day is going to bust my balls.
Having a deadline just ensures that whatever I'm doing will get done, but it's usually very last minute. For instance, this past semester, I had about 5 weeks to write this 5-7 page research paper on George Orwell. It was the easiest paper I've done in a while, but I didn't start it, including the research, until about 7 pm the night before it was due, and I got a perfect score on it. All a deadline does to me is increase my stress, because I know I have to finish something; it's just, how much can I slack off before it needs to be done?
But if I don't have a deadline, then I won't get shit done. My high school career was like that; we could hand in assignments as late as the last day of school, so I usually wouldn't do the work until the absolute last minute.

Pretty much this, but it's last day or hours for me.
YES. I always do better on projects with checkpoints and strict deadlines. No procrastination then.

I'm not really motivated to do it at all unless there is a deadline. And with homework I don't do shit until the deadline is like the next day or two. Too much time for an assignment does me no good.
The sig that I'm wearin? Awesomely made by Skaren!
Also, I like annoying Americans by calling English football "real football" and American football "rugby".-Lost-Chances
deadlines doesn't help me work faster, i need my own time for stuff and i think deadlines often are too short of time

They don't make you work faster. Ultimately, tasks have to be finished in a timely manner. It's why deadlines exist.
Proper time and stress management helps you complete tasks within deadlines and do them faster. If you're relying on last minute panic to help you finish a task, that is both poor time and stress management, and it will wear you out and you'll start making silly mistakes on your projects.
