Productivity/ Proactivity

I started looking ahead.
Not going day by day
Or even hour by hour,
But week by week.
Month by month.

I started setting goals for myself.
To be better than I am.
To not be that person people
Set as a benchmark,
The person that people think
"At least I'm not her" or
"If she did better than I did,
I'm screwed."
Level playing field.

I want to be relatable.
People who see me as an equal.
Who see me as human,
As a friend,
As a person.
I don't want to be a role model
Or a warning to the world.
I haven't enough "great" things
I haven't made enough mistakes (errors)
To earn either title.
