IF - Part 16

November 30, 2018

When I was a kid of about 9, I was rummaging through my mom’s desk and found a piece of round, flat wood.

The letters TUIT” were carved in large letters in the center.

After struggling to reason out what “TUIT” might stand for, I carried the small, coaster-like object to my parents bedroom where my mom sat sewing merit badges on my Scout uniform.

“Mom.” I said. “What’s this?”

Mom laughed.

“I don’t get it.” I said.

“Darling,” mom said. “That’s a 'round tuit' — get it? As in whenever you say you’ll do something whenever you get ‘around to it.’ Well, that’s a ‘round tuit.’ It reminds me that I can get around to anything that’s actually important because I already have a ‘round tuit.’

I think it was Napoleon Hill who said, “People who would never dream of killing themselves nevertheless commit suicide every day, little-by-little, by wasting their precious time.”

Today is your day to have your own ROUND TUIT.

"Fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds' worth of distance run."
