Just a phrase I heard yesterday from my resident driving instructor. I mentioned to him that my car windows were filthy (really thinking that he would clean them when he cleaned the snow off the car). When I said, huh, he repeated the phrase: “make time, take time” and more…..
Make time, take time to:
Clean your filthy windows (inside & out).
Check your tire pressure.
Refill your washer fluid reservoir.
Recharge your speakerphone.
Go to the car wash!
Oh, ok, I said thinking this conversation is over. Then he shared that he had driven my car to the store and that my gas tank was below a half tank… “And by the way, it’s time for an oil change, you may as well scheduled it too”!
At that point (wishing I had kept my thoughts to myself) I replied, you’re right, thanks Babe (thinking to myself… I’ll go to the express service at the dealer tomorrow and my list of things to do will be reduced to the two things I plan to do anyway). I’ll buy gas and charge my speakerphone on the way and the experts can do the rest.
Some days I’m really smart, don’t you agree?
