Today on my drive to the Tuacahn I had a bunch on my mind. The sunrise was a great sight and I decided I want to see more of those. I guess ever since I heard the saying “The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese…”, I felt that maybe getting up early and being early doesn’t always pay. But I think the second mouse is the exception. I have accomplished a lot in my life because I decided to take action and do immediately, rather than wait and see. Sometimes it can seem impulsive, but when I get inspiration to do something I do it, I take action. I have learned that when I act quickly, good things happen. “Procrastinate Later” – I read that on a bumper sticker when I was a kid and it has just stuck with me. If you are not going to take action at least put-off procrastination.
My family and I were supposed to head out of town down to see family in Mesa, AZ on Wednesday but I just didn’t feel right about going at the last minute and my wife and I decided to leave after the Saturday Tuacahn sales. We took action.
This morning I nearly sold out of my Swirl Wowflutes at the Tuacahn Saturday Market. The Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George brought in lots of new visitors and the Tuacahn must’ve done some heavy advertising because it was packed! The weather was perfect and I had a new marketing strategy to implement. It was busy from start to finish.
I reflected on how I almost missed my personal best sales day at the Tuacahn if I hadn’t chosen to stick around for the market and take action. I believe that God inspired us in small ways and promptings, the more I listen and do the easier it gets to hear and listen.
