A recent experience helped me see the value in “Do it now!” I had a package I needed to mail since July. Nothing urgent obviously, so I kept moving it to the bottom of my “to do” list. As I looked at my list and package, I would think, “I really should mail that.”
When I got an email saying postal rates would increase for the holiday season, it reminded me that I should mail it before October, but still it sat on my desk. During our webinar on Sunday, when we were prompted to write down another service on our index card, I wrote, “Mail the package.”
I knew it would get done because “I always keep my promises!” That night, I printed the mailing label and got everything ready to take to the post office.
I noticed an extra fee on the receipt for the holiday surcharge. It wasn’t a lot of extra money, but if I had done it sooner, I would have paid the regular rate. Now, I feel relieved that the package is on its way to its destination and off my desk!
So, if you have something simple on your to do list, I encourage you to, “DO IT NOW!” because it could save you money and give you peace of mind!
