When To Wait

When To Wait

There are many times in our pursuit of meaningful work that we choose to wait.

Most of those times are times we should have taken action. Most people wait too often, too long.

So it’s easier to have a “when to wait” list, then a “when to take action” list:

A response to an important question should be a response, not a reaction. Slow it down to do it justice.

An emotional topic that gets us fired up taunts us to respond reactively rather than thoughtfully. Slow it down to bring your best self.

A decision that affects us all needs to be made well, as best as it can be with the information we have available to us at the time of making that decision. Slow it down to make sure you’ve reviewed that information, to make your best decision.

What are you waiting for?
