To Do vs To Done

A to-do list,
can misguide us
to focus on getting things

May we remind ourselves
that it is a to-do list,
not a to-done list.

The list may say
spend 1-hour writing,
as opposed to saying
write 1 page.

Some things
don’t get done
by forcing it.

They get done
as a byproduct
of diligence
and persistence.
