To face challenges is a privilege..

I feel overwhelmed today

With problems coming my way

From every possible direction

I have no time for reflection

On what task to prioritize

I start with one thing and then realize

That another issue is more urgent

I then leave unfinished the task current

And jump on immediately to the next one

Hoping for no interruptions until it’s done


It is quite exhausting indeed

To pivot repeatedly based on the need

Of the hour, or the moment

It requires focus quite intense

Amid chaotic reshuffling of priorities

Strategic thinking and actions never cease

Until tasks are completed or rescheduled

During all this, adrenaline rush keeps me fueled

As I tackle each task, alone or with my team

Each successive step easier does seem

The feeling of being overwhelmed is replaced

By calm confidence, I feel accomplished that I have aced

The challenges that were placed before me

I think it is actually a privilege to be

In a position where I am challenged like this

Feeling accomplished at the end of a day is pure bliss
