    Re: Consider it done

    "When I say I will do something, consider it done." This means that I don't say I will do something unless I really mean it.
    It's not usually used in a sentence though. It's used by itself usually.
    Boss: "Can you finish this report this morning? I need it for 2pm."
    Worker: "Consider it done."
    It's a type of promise.

    1)When I start doing something, consider it done. -- As Ray described

    2) When I say see consider I said do it. -- This makes no sense

    3) When I leave consider you have to start work or working. -- This makes little sense. Do you mean some sort of command? I hope you realize that when I leave, you must start working/start to work.

    4) Once I have started doing something, you can consider it done.

    I want to know how we have to use this phrase "Consider it done". Please help.
    The best answer is the one Ray gave you - Use "Consider it done" as a response to a request to do something as a promise that it will be done as requested.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
