Challenge #01816-D355: A Needed Sense of Urgency

Inspired desperation, a great motivator when Procrastination has been your buddy. -- Anon Guest

The ships' human had two modes. "I'll get to it," and "Ah, shit, why didn't I get on this sooner?" Which, though entertaining to observe from a distance, was not always the best thing in an emergency. Or in any situation laced with urgency.

That said, the human was fantastic at pulling miracles out of nowhere when under stress. The rest of the crew merely wished that such things were available without the stress. Which was why they were having an intervention.

Human Dale took in the concerned Ch'nofran faces and sighed, "Aw man..." A deep breath. "I know how this is going to turn out. You're trying to intervene, and work out ways that I can be a better me and all that... And. Um. I'm a chronic procrastinator. I know this. I have tried... lots of things."
