Do you have trouble following up? I do. I have allowed many opportunities to slip by when I have failed to follow up.
Many years ago, I submitted a book proposal to an editor. To my surprise, the editor wrote back, saying she would like to see the entire manuscript. To my shame, I failed to follow up. Any time I see this editor at a writers' conference, I cringe and pray she doesn't remember my name.
An elderly sister in our ward (church) asked me to bring her a copy of one of my books. I promised I would do so. Before I followed up, this sweet sister died. I still berate myself for failing to follow up.
Fortunately, there have been instances when I have followed up. How great is my joy that I did not let those opportunities pass by.
Joy for today: following up.
