Dreaming about a deadline could reflect your own worries about a current assignment or project.
Perhaps you need to stop wasting time and get on with it if your heart hasn’t been in it of late. You may have an unhealthy attitude towards this and it’s causing you to procrastinate.
If you missed a deadline or were late for one, it’s possible you have a fear of change. You might be cautious about seizing an opportunity in your waking hours because you feel you’re not ready or indeed worthy of whatever it is because of your current circumstances.
You may be feeling the pressure to perform at work or at home and you want to be free of these expectations even if it’s not practical or possible to do so.
If you met a deadline with ease in your dream, this could be an indicator of a healthy work-life balance- something you may need to continue with if its serving you well. Similarly, you may need to convey the need for this equilibrium to others if you see that they are suffering as a result of one overpowering the other.
To dream about a deadline can also refer to your preoccupation with time. You may feel like your time is running out to do something important and you won’t be able to reach your goals or your dreams in the time you have set. Perhaps you need to be more realistic in your aspirations to make them more achievable and to avoid feelings of failure.
A deadline can simply mean the end of something- you may be feeling extreme emotions about the termination of something dear to you.
If you saw a deadline written on a calendar- this could signify something that has been bothering or hanging over you for weeks- but is about to come to an end.
