I’ll start tomorrow or the day after tomorrow or the day after that …


Written for the Daily Prompt: The Heat is On

I was the postponer.  The one who survives (not thrives) under pressure.  The avoider of facing things until just before the last minute.  The excuse maker upper.  The just-just over the fence scraper.  The loser of the best and the taker of the rest because I just barely passed the test.  And why?  Not because I’m stupid or lame, but because I acted that way.   Waiting for the pressure to squeeze out the bare minimum of my potential.
