I still remember watching and waiting from a distance.
Many moons ago, I still remember setting up a mouse trap with my grandmother in Korea and waiting for a rodent to be caught.
It was dark in the room.
It seemed like we were watching and waiting forever.
At long last, ding dong the mouse was finally dead.
It reminds me of the saying, “A watched pot never boils.”
Watching and waiting too much for things to happen whether in business or life are a huge waste of time.
And it makes it seem longer.
One of my business mentors once wisely said that nothing just happens with time, meaning that you can’t just sit around and wait for things to happen.
I am not a proponent of multi-tasking, yet I do subscribe to the idea that as an entrepreneur, it’s wise to have different business projects going on.
You can still focus on each project intently and give it the attention it deserves while another project may be on temporary hiatus.
As a wife and homeschool Mom, I need to be flexible and focused on different tasks, but I deem them all important. If I wait for circumstances to be perfect before I perform the tasks for my home and business projects, then I am wasting precious time that cannot be bought back.
If you wait, you waste.
What tips would you give so that you are not wasting your time in life and your business pursuits? I would love to hear your comments.
