Now I Take It Easy

images-3Gone are those days when I used to feel heat

Deadline coming near, my heart used to beat

I am much calmer and easy going now

Don’t succumb under pressure somehow 

I have run, done enough to prove my capabilities

Shown my talent, a  perfectionist, tested my abilities

Times have changed, pressure doesn’t kick me

I do things at my own pace, this is a new cool me 🙂

If there is a delay, all hell will not break lose

If I don’t meet the deadline, I will politely excuse

I will try my best to achieve my goal

But that would not become the sore

Surely not a question of life and death

I work best if I take interest

  1. I remember once, early in my career, being all upset about an upcoming deadline. My boss looked at me and said “Relax. It’s only software.” He was right. It wasn’t life and death after all 🙂

  2. I don’t know what to say. I am speechless, cause this is something that has been bothering me for quite sometime. Your poem has touched the very same dilemma on my mind. I am going to take this as an advice and breathe. 🙂
    Thank you! This is really a great piece! 🙂

    1. Good to have peace of mind. How does it make difference after all? Is it something to do with age or may be one feels saturated at some stage of life and says ‘no more stress’

  3. A good reminder…sometimes I have to remind myself that it’s just work – the politics, deadlines, annoying characters in the office – there are more important things in life.

      1. Yep, we all have better things to do in life, I will remember that. Thanks Rashmi, and have a great week ahead 🙂
