Best Work

Your best work keeps you focused gives you something to do

Engages mind and body and your spirit too

Work gives you identity and demonstrates your worth

If you’re very fortunate it provides a purpose for your birth


It’s a stage for your learning a place to discover

How your stories line up with those of others

It’s a place you go to a joyful escape

Your own personal center the place where you’re great


It gives your life traction a centered grounding force

When it is compelling it becomes your sacred source

If you’re serious about your legacy

It’s time to think about who you might be


Get clear on your mission then make a plan

Gather your intentions measure your wingspan

Scale down and be earnest then get to work

One foot then the next to discover your worth


Let others come see do not hide and shrink

Uncertainty passes so not too much think

As your days grow shorter and you’re measuring self

Let best work distinguish you from everybody else


Have you ever thought about a personal mission that expresses the purpose you are here?

If you have does that mission still ring true for you?

Do you have a sense that you have been living and working with that purpose in mind?

What course corrections do you need to make?

What resources do you need?

Who can assist you?

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.
