Onetasking - Visitor's Poem

by Adrian McGinn
(Paris, France)

Life’s jugglers, life’s illusions
Seen to be busy, doing, doing
Balls in the air, keeping up
One falls, all fall, oh well!
Back in the air again, no choice
But they are not all the same
Bigger, smaller, shapeless
Sleep is setting in, eyes glazing
Air will not keep them up
Mind overcrowding, degrading
Hypnotized, nothing left to do
But let them be grounded
Now one ball, one chosen one
What joy, what relief
mind, brain, heart synchronized
To bring the best out
For that one ball
Then another, & again
Bring on the next one

One task at a time
by: Fion

Hi Adrian, thanks for highlighting how juggling with many tasks at one go could easily lead to an overcrowded mind and caused distractions. Instead by focusing on one task, we can find more joy in completing that task and looking forward to the next challenge.
