Prepared

“Fire… aim… ready” is a disaster,

so, too, is assumptive planning.

If the change includes forced cramming,

it’s impudent just to be faster.

I begin at ease to get ready –

measured response with focused calm

makes easy effort without qualm

and allows for change to be steady.

I circle the target and take aim –

engaged with intended purpose

cultivates a lasting service

and keeps the enlightened soul aflame.

I must pull a trigger to fire –

a committed resolution

not one and done execution

makes possible my heart’s desire.

Gratefully the task I now hasten,

a helping hand for the service.

Structured teamwork is on purpose,

I continue to share and listen.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
