I was just told that I work best on kairos time.
Brilliant World, New York City 2009.

Kairos (καιρός) is an ancient Greek word meaning 
the right or opportune moment. 

The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. 
While the former refers to chronological or sequential time
the latter signifies a time in between,
a moment of undetermined period of time in which 
something special happens. 
What the special something is depends on who is using the word. 
While chronos is quantitative, kairos has a qualitative nature
kairos is "a passing instant when an opening appears which 
must be driven through with force if success is to be achieved."
