I can procrastinate indefinitely

Tasks that don’t need to be done urgently

I have a running list of things to do in my mind

Things that drop to the bottom if there’s no defined

Timeline in which they are expected to be completed

It’s not important right now is the mantra I have always repeated

To delay anything that does not need to occupy

My limited time and attention, and that is why

Some projects exist only in a future mythical

I talk about, but never act on them, in my manner typical


As a type A individual I seem to thrive

Under pressure, all my faculties come alive

When there is a narrow deadline to meet

I want to accomplish a difficult feat

In record time I love to reach the finish line

I galvanize all my resources to align

In such a way that I am efficient and productive

Under time constraints, my entire focus to one project I can give


The downside of being this way seems to be

Being my own boss is more difficult for me

I have figured that self-imposed deadlines

Do not work as well for projects that are mine

I need to have someone to marvel and say-

How did you complete this task in one day?


I am working on a time-bound challenge as I write

Using limited time productively to my delight
