111. Non-Doing

     I doubt if I am the only one that needs to schedule non-doing.  A lifetime of being busy and working very hard has me scrambling to keep my life in balance. Days before I retired in October last year, I attended a one-day seminar called Choices to Extra Ordinary Activity. (AN ASIDE; it was tp say PRODUCTIVITY; but what a PUN; ACTIVITY – PRODUCTIVITY).

    The course gave ideas on how to act on the important and go for the extraordinary through scheduling, technology and constant renewal.

      Years ago I wrote a song that goes like this:

“Life can be easy

Doesn’t have to be tough

If I know when to say

Enough is enough

If I always listen

Before I speak

Listen inside

Then I can speak

The truth I know

Inside of me

That’s always been striving

To be set free

I’m ready to listen

Ready to sing

Ready for whatever

Each day brings

And what I will do

When my work is all done

Maybe it’s time

To sit in the sun.”

     I still feel I have work to do.  I am not speaking about the employment that I may go back to on a part-time basis this summer.  I am speaking about using my gifts and talents to enhance life for others.  That to me is worth scheduling.                                           FEB. 9, 2015
