A Brief Musing



Is work piling up and there’s just too much to do?
Are you getting frustrated with things backing up on you?
Does your to-do list keep getting longer with no end in sight?
Would you stop and relax if you weren’t so up-tight?

Does the rat race leave your head buzzing and spinning?
Is it depressing to see the damn rats are winning?
Are you holding up the world but feeling it slip?
Is the balance in your life beginning to tip?

Did your future just flash before your eyes?
Was it what you expected or a total surprise?
Either way you don’t need to see it twice.
Put on the brakes and consider this advice.

Grab that to-do list and a ballpoint with ink.
Shortening the list isn’t as hard as you think.
Put a checkmark beside the tasks that are urgent to do.
Everything else can wait until you’re through.

Look at your checkmarks and handle it this way.
Put a + beside tasks you can finish today.
Rank the + items from more urgent to less.
If it’s hard to decide, quick take a guess.

Take your + list and cut it in half.
As the bottom drops off, don’t stop to laugh.
What’s left is urgent so approach it this way.
Just buckle down and do today’s work today.

Here’s a Bonus Musing



You’ve heard the one about good old boys.
It’s rusty pickups and small town joys.
It’s beer from a bottle and friends you know.
It’s country singers and rodeo.
It’s catfish fried and collard greens.
It’s well worn boots and old blue jeans.

But if you got your idea from an old country song,
I’m here to say, you’ve got it wrong.

Those slower times are all in your mind.
A hayseed boy is hard to find.
It’s smart phones and business suits.
You know who they are by the cut of their boots.
It’s friends on Facebook and followers on Twitter.
They don’t chew tobacco and none is a spitter.

But if you got your idea from an old country song,
I’m here to say, you’ve got it wrong.

Country boys with college degrees.
Budweiser or perhaps Chardonnay, if you please.
Running the ranch with iPad and GPS.
Good ol’ boys saying “Yes,” to success.
Clinging fast to the country point of view.
Helping the neighbors; it’s the right thing to do.

But if you got your idea from an old country song,
I’m here to say, you’ve got it wrong.

A pickup truck – an office on wheels.
Knowing all about prospects and about making deals.
Managing the farm – it’s computerized.
In business matters, being seldom surprised.
God and family still heading the list.
If you can’t make it for supper, you know you’ll be missed.

But if you got your idea from an old country song,
I’m here to say, you’ve got it wrong.

But if you got your idea from an old country song,
I’m here to say, you’ve got it wrong.
