The Daily Post’s prompt for April 8th:
Tell us your tried and true techniques for focusing when that deadline looms and you need to get work done. In other words, how do you avoid wasted day and wasted nights?

This is my take of it.


What to do,
I’m feeling stalled and lazy,
What to do.

Procrastinating and delaying,
Impending deadline in four hours,
Must get started.

A deep breath,
Must focus and center myself,
Ready… set… go!

Grab my headphones.
Select music on iPod, then
Set up laptop.

Levine is crooning,
I’m humming and speedily typing,
Finish line insight.

No more dragging,
Full on singing and dancing,
And saving furiously.

Proofreading and revising,
Second, third and fourth look,
All most there!

Start email and attach document,
Pressing send…Done!
