Waiting For Things to Unfold

Waiting on perfect timing

I used to take action quickly. It’s my nature. I see a problem, even way before it will unfold, and I attack it. That’s what I do. I’m a problem solver.

But it’s not always a good thing. Perhaps in a rational world, my bent and instincts would be fitting.

But in an irrational world, it’s not always the best thing. Things need to unfold.

So, before heading into the discussion I should have, I wait for emotions to settle down or clarity to take place.

Instead of offering the exact solution, I let others digest the thoughts I planted.

It works a lot better this way. I tend to see the end quickly and it can be daunting if I simply proclaim it and move at light speed. I get to work this way on my own problems without any issue, so I do have a space of fulfillment in this regard.

So, here’s the thought. Sometimes things do need to unfold for the ripe moments to act. You can plan, prepare and set things up. But people tend to move slower and more emotionally. This is reality and it would serve you well to execute new strategies accordingly.
