Long Lists

Sometimes when I sit at my desk
And think of the things I have to do
The list goes on and on and on
And where to start I have no clue

So I decide to check emails instead
And then I go to get some tea
Read forwards that come on whatsapp
And do other things to distract me

After some time I come back to work
But I look at the list - even longer now
Wish I could just escape somewhere
And have a blank slate again somehow

But the list grows on, longer and longer
There is no way I can catch up with it
The only way that I see ahead
Is to chuck things out, and start pruning it

Why take on so many tasks
Why commit to do so many things
Why not focus on a few key projects
And relish the happiness that it brings
