When I was a lower case k,
I would participate in the drama.
I would listen to gossip
(though I wouldn’t pass it along).
I would sprout off an opinion.
I would get heated about things like
that poorly written memo
on appropriate casual Friday wear.

Then I realized…

Drama is a time suck.

It is also a passion suck
and ultimately a success suck.
Look at the people
actively participating in drama.
What have they last accomplished?

Be aware of what the drama is
(because it might interfere
with your project or team)
but don’t participate
or follow it too closely.
Allocate that time to doing.
