Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message. I hope you all had a great weekend filled with fun and relaxation. This week would be a great week to start taking the bull by the horns. Are there things in your life that you have consistently put off? Are there things in your business that you know you should do, but you keep telling yourself you can do them later? Well, this week is it. Let us get some of those things done and off the list.

You will feel a great sense of satisfaction when you take something that has been on your mind for a long time and get it done. Maybe it's calling a family member you have not spoken to in a while. Maybe it's calling those clients that you have not been in touch with recently to see how they are doing. Maybe its organizing your desk or files. Maybe its helping a friend with something they need to do. Whatever it is that comes to your mind - Get It Done. The more we put things off the more they build up. When we keep doing this the little things become the biggest challenges and then become major problems. Take little bites, but constantly keep chewing!


The Sin of Omission 
by: Margaret E. Sangster

It isn't the thing you do, dear, 
It's the thing you leave undone 
That gives you a bit of a heartache 
At the setting of the sun. 
The tender work forgotten, 
The letter you did not write, 
The flowers you did not send, dear, 
Are your haunting ghosts at night.

The stone you might have lifted 
Out of a brother's way; 
The bit of heart-some counsel 
You were hurried too much to say; 
The loving touch of the hand, dear,

The gentle, winning tone 
Which you had no time nor thought for 
With troubles enough of your own.

Those little acts of kindness

So easily out of mind, 
Those chances to be angels 
Which we poor mortals find~ 
They come in night and silence, 
Each sad, reproachful wraith, 
When hope is faint and flagging, 
And a chill has fallen on faith.


For life is all too short, dear, 
And sorrow is all to great, 
To suffer our slow compassion 
That tarries until too late: 

And it isn't the thing you do, dear, 
It's the thing you leave undone 
Which gives you a bit of heartache 
At the setting of the sun.
