Stretch (A Poem)

Stretch yourself, but not too far (when)
You’re not qualified
If you can’t complete the task
They’ll find out that you lied 

But don’t just take the lowest fruit (that’s)
Hanging in your face
Get outside your zone and try to
Find the middle pace

Even when you don’t know all the
Details of the stuff
Speaking with authority
Can often be enough

No hard set of rules (it’s all a)
Toss-up, case by case
If you should decline, or if it’s
Something you could ace 

“If you decide that you’re going to do only the things you know are going to work,
you’re going to leave a lot of opportunity on the table.”
-Jeff Bezos
