Take Action When You Get A Round Tuit

How many times have you said, “I’ll do it when I get around to it.”  Yeah, me too – dozens or hundreds of times.

Back in 1993 or 1994, I met a man named Yank who considered it his personal mission to hand out Round Tuits like the one pictured above, and to encourage people to do all the things they said they’d do whenever they “got around to it.”  I don’t know what happened to the one he gave me, but the memory has always stuck with me…even though the attitude comes and goes.

For example, this weekend I finally got around to mounting a broomstick holder in a utility area of our home.  I bought it several months ago, put it aside, and said I’d mount it when I…you guessed it…got around to it.

Well, I finally decided that Saturday was the day to do it.  I think it took all of five minutes. But I first had to get the drill, hammer, screw driver, drill bits, level, etc.  Once the project was done, I felt a huge sense of relief that something was now off my list.  And I asked myself, “Why did I wait so long to do that?”

What’s on your “Round Tuit” list?  Are there a few things, at work or at home, that you haven’t gotten around to yet, but if you did, would give you such a big sense of relief, or would make a difference in your home or work life?  If so, why not take a half hour or an hour today and make it happen?

Consider today the day you got a “Round Tuit.”
