Don’t Stop To Think. Call Them.

This happened to me this past week and I wanted to share this lesson with you before it gets washed away in another week of activity.

I was swimming the other day and was reminded of a friend of mine that I’ve lost contact with over the years. The trigger came when I heard the word Chicago sung during one of my favorite songs. Every time I hear the word Chicago I think of this gentleman, but I usually leave it at that. On this particular day I decided to contact the man that evening. But as you might’ve guessed, I failed to do so. (Another bogus example of good intentions going south.)

As luck would have it, the very same man contacted me the following day. What resulted was a very enjoyable conversation, and a date scheduled for me to be a guest on his podcast.

My message today should be clear. I know it has happened to you over the years. When you think of somebody out of the blue contact them… sooner rather than later. Beat them to the punch. I honestly believe that when you think of somebody, they are thinking of you at the very same time.

Good intentions are just that … good intentions. Be the one who makes the first move and you’ll be glad you did.
