Is “Waiting Around” A Good Strategy For Success?

Christi Hegstad June 17th, 2013


“Inspiration usually comes during work, rather than before it.”

~ Madeleine L’Engle

Coaching Tip For The Week:

One of the things I love most about coaching is my clients’ desire to make things happen rather than waiting for inspiration, motivation, or the elusive “perfect time” to strike. They’ve typically reached the point where they’re done with floating, drifting, or spinning in circles and are ready to take action.

When it comes to professional success, “waiting around” is rarely a good strategy.
What do you want to create in your life? 

What are you waiting for?

This week, instead of waiting for ___________ (you fill in the blank) before you write your book, seek a new career path, exhibit your artwork, or whatever your dreams include, take an action towards it. 

If you’re waiting for skills or knowledge, seek out a class or professional for help. 

If you’re waiting for the perfect time, that’s today.

What are YOU ready to make happen? Share your dream below, on Facebook, or via Twitter. Publicizing your idea will make you more likely to act on it!
