Sitting around, waiting for our cue to set the act in motion, can be a tiring occupation in itself. Time moves at a snail’s march, it sometimes seems, as we hang around in attendance for the next opportunity to put our preparation into practice.
Regardless of our role, most jobs have elements of downtime interspersed with periods of intense activity. What we do whilst waiting for our next moment ‘of glory’ might be significant. Some may choose to merely sit around, kick their heels and chew the proverbial cud with colleagues.
Others possibly prefer to profit from the free time by either investing in ongoing learning or, if away from the workplace, undertaking leisure pursuits. In terms of using the moments we are waiting for this or that, options are only really limited to our imagination.
Waiting for something to happen could be what you have been engaging in as you read this post. In any case, let me thank you for connecting here today.
