Chapter 9. Getting Your Act Together > Balancing Acts - Pg. 91

Getting Your Act Together 91 Gluing the Pieces Back Together To salvage some sense of order in that chaotic day, I called the doctor's office to say I'd be late, which enabled me to relax a little bit. I also asked about the co-payment amount I would owe and the forms of payment accepted. I then made sure to put my checkbook in my purse so I wouldn't have to take time to stop at a cash machine. I also made the decision to save time by leaving home with wet hair. After all, I wasn't going to be in a beauty pageant, and it would probably dry in the heat by the time I got there anyway. I then walked there swiftly but not at breakneck speed, arriving only 12 minutes late and not too sweaty.
