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?
