Don’t be lazy , because other people will match your effort.
You can not manage your life with phone calls. Show up.
It is so easy to pass the buck and blame someone else if you only make calls. No matter what you need , a sweater ordered from another store location , a donation to your charity, a loan for a car , or to sort out a snafu in cash assistance : get off your butt and in their door.
Make them do the work while you watch..
