One Thing at a Time Done Well: A Rhyme to Inspire

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


I will always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job because he will find an easy way to do it.

-- Ziad K. Abdelnour

That Aleister Crowley, a dude allegedly not nice

wasn't really all that devilish -- or whatever else

as he came up with some mighty good advice

that's ringing in my ears like a hundred bells:

"Do what you will -- and will what you do"

unlocks freedom to choose with strong intent

preventing us to bite more than we can chew

while greatly reducing the energy spent.

One thing at a time and done well

with task at hand being always clear

has the power to remove worrying spell

while anchoring us to this now and here.

It's about fragmenting all activity in doable parts

which simplifies our life beyond imagination

as we do each part with willing hearts

allowing ourselves some elation.

For oftentimes we fall victims to our own mind

which tends to cram all tasks on our small plate

and that's why we're finding it so hard to unwind

unable to snap out of that crazy and restless state.

Life as a whole can't be handled with ease

with too much to do in time that's so short

but its little chunks can pass in a breeze

with no counting on anyone's support.
