There’s no half hour longer than the one we spend waiting for something: our table to be ready, the show to start, the gun to go off.
We know this when it comes to the small things, but not the big ones.
So we’re content to sit back and wait for that next big project to land on our laps. We’re happy to cool our heels until we get promoted, because we believe the new title will get folks to listen to us in a new way. We’re OK with holding court at the water cooler while we wait for our boss to figure out what we already know.
Speak up. Act now. Stop waiting.
