Though deadlines creates tight squeeze, it enables the web developer or freelancer to provide high quality work. Most of the clients are unaware about the project completion and the realistic or unrealistic work. So, it’s the freelancer responsibility to create deadlines and schedules for the project and realize that it is reasonable.

Some projects have larger or smaller goals and deadlines, based upon the importance and consistency of the project. Though, you are working on smaller projects with limited deadlines, it’s a good practice to set the task and step needed to set the project completed. If you’re evaluating the project for completion, it will be much easier and accurate for them.
