Waiting is one of my least favorite things. I do it only when necessary, otherwise, I don’t see the point.
But life thinks differently. That’s why it schedules periods of waiting – when all we can do is: chew on ‘patience pie’.
If waiting is part of life’s reality, can we get better at it? Yes we can!
One: Identify The Gains
If I must wait as part of life’s process, I can’t wait for nothing. Now, I ask myself: what do I want to get out of this wait? What benefits do I want to leave with by the time its over? Once I was put on hold by life and I decided to write three books. That was my take out.
Two: Every Wait Ends
This is an invaluable mental poise. For you to survive the waiting process, you must understand that every wait comes to an end. It’s a law.
Three: Get Busy
Waiting doesn’t mean that we sit around doing nothing. We’re in a process that requires that we change focus – not be inactive. While you’re waiting, create something. Put your mind to work.
