Give yourself a break!
Take life easy, don’t panic,
don’t be in a haste.
You can try but you cannot be
always at your best !
Do your job the best way you can,
giving yourself some time.
Unless the work has to be completed fast,
You have a Deadline!
Sometimes you need to go slow
But remain ever so steady.
But that doesn't mean to waste time
to get the work all ready.
If you always worry and hurry,
the quality of your work
May not turn out nicely,
may not be Up to the mark!
All it depends what you do,
how you get work done,
Your work should be made interesting
and you should do it with fun.
Many important matters get left out
when you work in a haste,
So be slow, not too slow though,
Don’t put yourself to test !
Speed up your work when need be
But remember to give yourself a break,
To relax your mind, to feel afresh,
Little rest you must take!
