#41: Cancel your appointments
Oftentimes, picking up the phone and making a small phone call goes a long way. Once again, canceling an appointment you’ve made if you can’t make it sounds like common sense, and yet so many people fail to do it. You wouldn’t skip out on a friend you made plans with if you couldn’t make it – you’d let them know in advance, right?
In a similar way, if you can’t make it to a doctor’s appointment (or any other appointment you’ve scheduled with a professional) – you should let them know in advance. This is one important rule all people should be aware of, and yet it isn’t really a rule at all – it’s simply common sense.
