Pick up the phone
When something needs to be done, do it. Doing it is what separates you from most people. It drives your success.
Don’t play passive. Don’t start the job, and then walk away. Don’t just leave a voicemail, or email or text, and convince yourself you at least tried. Trying is a start, not an excuse. You have to get things done. You have to accomplish, to make the connection, and fulfill.
Win the battle that no one sees, and too few attempt. Complete the cycle. Finish what you set out to do.
