Doing the Undone
“Let us do or die.”*
All of us are surrounded by unfinished projects…at work, in our homes, in our relationships. These undone actions can be haunting, constant reminders of all we once meant to do. If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, then that road is littered with unfinished projects.
As the poet instructs us, let us “do or die.” Let’s make this a week of action. Let’s you and I tackle an unfinished project today, whether it’s laundry to be done or a letter to be finished, whether it’s a construction project or a confrontation with a colleague.
I promise, it’ll feel really good.
*This week my wife Jenny is in Scotland, leading a group of high school English students on a literary tour of the country. So, this week all of our quotes come from great Scottish writers.
Peace begins with pause,
