How important getting things done

Provides a feeling that you have won

On your face a big smile

Dismissing ambiguity of life for a while


Engendering a sense of what you can do

Allowing pride to be born in you

There’s power control a special tired too

Chasing the “blahs” when feeling blue


To Do list checked you feel good inside

Path taken fills you with pride

Couch potato life OK for others

Not for my sisters or brothers


Each day an hour is not very much

Added together the total adds up

End of the month end of the year

Accomplishment gives pause for cheer


The Japanese notion kaizen says it well

A little each day creates something swell

Don’t think too much don’t cogitate

Get busy get going get out of your gate


How do you feel filling days with activity and accomplishment?

Why is efficiency or excellence important?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.

My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.

My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
