Do you continue to make the same resolutions with the same results? Do you have a daily routine that doesn’t vary? Do you wish something would change, but it doesn’t? You’re not alone. To make a change, we have to change ourselves and instead of thinking about it, take action.
What does this have to do with an attorney’s blog?
There are some things we put off that could improve life. An accident is less likely if preparations are made beforehand. Serious medical issues may be averted or treatment started if found and addressed as soon as possible. Have you checked your tires lately? Have you installed a carbon monoxide detector? When receiving a new prescription, do you read the instructions and the possible side effects? Do you go to the doctor for annual checkups, or more often if an unusual symptom arises? Most of these items land somewhere on a To Do list, but end up at the bottom, yet neglecting any of these can create serious, even fatal, problems.
The importance of a doctor visit
For example, if you were exposed to asbestos in a prior job, tell your doctor so that specific tests can be run. Even if you have no current symptoms of lung disease from asbestos, it is good to have a baseline scan. If you do have symptoms, there is no time to waste. Go to the doctor for a diagnosis and, if that turns out to be mesothelioma, it is important to start treatment and talk to an attorney immediately.
Remember, “Procrastination is the bad habit of putting off until the day after tomorrow what should have been done the day before yesterday.”
