When I was around 10 years old, my dad came home from work and said, “I have something for you”. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a round disc, plastic, plain vanilla coloring, with one word printed on it – tuit. I stared at it, wondering what was this strange little coin, and he said to me, “This is so you can do anything you want.”
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“Whenever you want or need to do something, and you just can’t seem to get around to it, just pull this out, your own personal round tuit.”
I laughed in delight and he chuckled and ruffled my hair and walked away. I don’t know if he ever realized what it meant to me. He’s long gone now, both of my parents are, but this one legacy has stayed with me. If something needs doing, just get around to it. Oh sure, I still procrastinate with the best of them, but I don’t make any excuses anymore. I’ve had my tuit all my life, still have that small plastic one he gave me, and have collected a few virtual tuits along the way. So when I procrastinate or don’t get things done, I know the only reason is that I didn’t make time for it.
No excuses, just choices. All you have to do is get a round tuit.
Anything is possible…
