Every time I wait to get gas in my car, I am sorry as I see the empty light blink.
Every time I wait to get my oil changed or my inspection, I regret it.
Once I put off moving until the day before, well you can imagine how that turned out, too much packing and lots of stress.
What is the lesson? Do it now. If you think about it and don’t have a kid, dog or other urgency pulling on you at the moment, go do the task because nine times of ten you will forget about that “task” and then it becomes an emergency or at the very least a critical situation.
I was recently reminded of this when my darling husband said, are you going to get your clothes out of the dryer and I said, “in a minute” with a trifle of defensiveness which is ridiculous since laundry isn’t personal, and he is trying to do me a favor by having me not wait to get it done since the clothing would wrinkle otherwise and overall I should just get up and do it.. NOW. I know, I know, the couch is comfortable and its just a few minutes, what difference will it make?
Well, in some cases not a lot. But in others it could make the difference between getting a fine or not getting from point A to point B. Think about it!
