I Can Do It LaterI can do it later is a belief that I regret most of all. There has been incident after incident that should have taught me that sometimes later can be too late.
Some years ago I was writing an article about an elderly man who had led a very interesting life. His daughter was tremendously excited that dad was going to be in the newspaper and so was he.
I took lots of photo's and recorded hours of conversation but I did not hurry editing it.
Before I had finished the piece the man died.
The newspaper still ran the story and the family loved it and all the photographs but how much better it would have been if the old man had been able to share the excitement with his family.
