Passion Party #392 - The "Not To Do" List

Doin' in, Doin' it, Doin' it...
Just like Toad,
in the "Frog and Toad" books,
I start most days making a To Do list
Then I spend the day
going down the list
crossing things off to create
a feeling of accomplishment.
But the next day there is always another list
of things to do.

Doin' in, Doin' it, Doin' it...

Today, for a change
the To Do list can wait.
What if, just for today,
it becomes more important to focus
on what Not To Do
to improve my life?
What would that list look like?

Do Not obsess about my job
Do Not get into arguments with employees or clients
Do Not overeat at lunch
Do Not forget to tell your family that you love them
Do Not spend 8 hours sitting at your desk - no matter how many things
are on your "to do" list
