Time is fleeting

I woke up ready to rise and shine

An early start seemed to be a sign

That I would be productive, or so I thought

But the day passed, I did not accomplish a lot

There was just so much that I wanted to do

I wanted to work hard and have fun too

Work, read, write, socialize, be creative

To each task attention I wanted to give…

But once again life got in the way

Of my having a highly productive day..


In this month, the last month of the year

I had aimed to expand in every sphere

My 31-day goals were quite lofty indeed

But unfortunately my expectations did exceed

The reality, and circumstances were such

That I could not accomplish in this month very much

I could blame it on the holidays, therefore the slow pace

Or the unseasonably cold weather that we had to face

But in truth I could not be equally industrious every day

I had to take many breaks along the way


The end of the year beckons, in a panic I find

The goals for this year that I had defined

Are far from being accomplished, though I had 365 days

I should have been able to catch up before time flew away

But unexpected occurrences made me deviate

From my path, thus I could not empty my plate..


Days, months and years go by fast

If only somehow I could make them last

Just a bit longer in order to complete

All my goals, life would be sweet..

This is what I used to think, but now

I wonder if I should give myself slack and allow

Me to lighten the burden of expectations in such a way

That I accomplish the most important projects every day

Continue this strategy month after month and year after year

And make steady progress in each sphere
