Say It, Do It

2 Dec

Say It, Do It

There’s two real simple steps involved
In doing anything
Step 1 is to say it, then
To cease to simply sing

Step 2 is to do it, to get
Up and put in motion
The idea that you talked about
The brilliant little notion

Here’s the funny thing about
Accomplishing a goal:
Only one step’s mandatory
To get on a roll

Step 1 is just optional
You do not need to talk
About what you are planning on
So that you’ll walk the walk

The problem is that talking is
The much easier choice
Very few can claim to sweat
From simply using voice

The second option of doing
Is not as pleasant, nor
Is it as exciting, it can
Tend to be a bore

And that’s why so many folks have
A lot of plans they’ve said
Never end up happening
And stay up in their head

Because they didn’t shut their mouths
And advance to Step 2
Remember, you don’t have to talk
But you must always do

    warrior, “then to cease to simply sing” is my favorite part; our deeds to indeed SING through the ages. The swing, shining blade of truth sings a VERY bright song, does it not? Thank you for “doing” this post today.

    Very clever way of expounding a very important and broadly applicable truth!
