What are you waiting for?!?

Happy Friday!

Did you know, over the span of your lifetime, you will spend (on average) 693 hours waiting for planes, trains, and automobiles? And the equivalent of 22 weeks waiting in lines… be it at grocery stores, banks, or amusement parks!

That is a LOT of time waiting!

Right now, it’s sort as if the world is at a bit of a stand still.

And we’re all just waiting.

Waiting for cities to open back up, waiting for it all to be over, waiting for a new normal… whatever that may look like.

It reminds me of what Dr. Seuss, in ‘Oh The Places You’ll Go,’ refers to as ‘The Waiting Place:


…for people just waiting. 

Waiting for a train to go 

or a bus to come, or a plane to go 

or the mail to come, or the rain to go 

or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow 

or waiting around for a Yes or a No 

or waiting for their hair to grow. 

Everyone is just waiting…


In this week’s video, you’ll discover the two types of waiting that exist. And why one of them, largely within our control, is far more detrimental than the other.


Have you spent any time in The Waiting Place? Perhaps you’re there now?

It’s time to stop waiting. It’s time to start DOING.

Because the truth is, you may never feel ready.

And, you can choose to feel ready enough, and take that first small step of action anyway! That’s what being brave is all about.

Go on, I dare you!

And I look forward to hearing from you in the comments below when you do…
