A female caller rang a commercial radio station that was running a competition. She had just become engaged and wanted the cash prize for a house deposit. The woman said that she was excited about her engagement because sheโ€™d been waiting for 7 years for her partner to ask her to marry him.

I was amazed. Why wait so long for someone else to do something?

As I thought about it, it made sense. Many of us have been taught to โ€˜waitโ€™ from a young age. How many times have you heard someone say โ€˜wait your turnโ€™.

Itโ€™s easy to make waiting a habit, when it needs to be a choice. There is no question that in the right circumstances it can be highly beneficial. But sometimes itโ€™s not.

So, Iโ€™m curious. ๐Ÿค”

โ€ข If youโ€™re someone who tends to โ€˜waitโ€™ or be overly patient, is today a good day to challenge that and say โ€˜do I really need to wait?โ€™

โ€ข Alternatively, if you find it hard to be patient and tend to dive in quickly, is today a good day to pause and be more purposeful?

I will look forward to hearing your thoughts.
