Unplanning your day: The secret of being productive

And another day bites the dust.

Another day

interrupted by phone-calls that distract

and messages that need attention

and book reviews that possibly didn’t need to be written

but you wrote them anyway

and impromptu lunches with dear friends

and letters that almost broke your heart to write.

Not what you planned–again.

But you answered,

you gave,

you shared,

you discussed,

you encouraged,

you listened,

you blessed.



– but productive,

if you don’t measure it against a To Do list.
