How many times do you chat with a friend and say, "We should get together for dinner." And then you never do?

Several years ago my word for the year was intentional.

I committed to taking action and inviting friends to meet for coffee or dinner.

Since that year I created a habit and when I utter those words I either get out my calendar and say, "Let's schedule a date." Or I add it to my "to do" list and follow-up later.

Tonight, think about the last person you said, "We should get together."

Get out your phone and send them a text, or better yet, give them a call, and invite them to dinner. Bonus points if you cook the meal!

I've sent my text. Have you?
