Phun-size Philosophy # 52 – Waiting

Waiting means that you are anticipating the occurrence of something happening in the future. It is the period in which you are basically inactive because of an inability to pursue a particular subject usually because of an external factor. During this time period you could just be sitting around doing nothing but I consider this a huge waste of time. I believe that you should always take full advantage of the time you have been gifted of having here on Earth. I think that a productive thing to be doing during this time period where you can’t really progress because you need somebody to do something first, you should be utilizing it to its full advantage by planning and calculating. These are some of the major actions that you can take to make sure that the event you are waiting for will be worth the period of wait when the actual time arises for it to happen. In order to make sure that the wait was worth it, the event must occur at the right moment. Sometimes it might not be up to you to decide when things will happen so this advice may not apply to you but it is still helpful to know for future reference. When you are searching for the best time to strike you can either dive right into the situation where the situational variables may not be just right or you can just sit back or wait long periods of time trying to find the opportune moment to strike. The negative of just rushing into a situation is that the environment may not be set up correctly to achieve the desired results but it definitely can limit the time consumption. If you wait for the right moment you can waste lots of time where you can do other things instead of just waiting. If you aren’t completely attentive then it is possible that you could miss the right time and opportunity to accomplish a task. If you do decide to wait, patience is key and how much willingness you have to just sit there and use up time when you could be doing something else more meaningful. Motivation and determination are huge factors that can determine how long you’ll wait. Your loyalty also plays a role and how much loyalty you have to those who you are waiting for will be an influencer in what you are willing to do and how much time you’ll wait. The important thing to realize is that you can’t always control your environment but you most likely can control your response in almost every situation. While someone may have you wait, you can ultimately decide how to deal with the situation. For the most part you want to actively seek out the change you want to occur. If you want a successful and happy lifestyle you can’t just sit back and expect it to happen because you are the most reliable person for yourself and if you do want something done right (or at least done reliably), it will happen if you are able to do it yourself.
