Yes, I agree. The problem with attaching a deadline to an intention is that as the time draws closer, you start focusing on the fact that your intention hasn't manifested yet, you don't have what you intended. You may start to worry or get anxious or feel angry. And then the Universe responds by not giving it to you because you are now in a state of resistance and your vibration has shifted.
I think using a deadline with intention-manifestation only works if you can truly detach from the outcome. That's a hard one for a lot of folks.
