Patience is necessary. Charging forward isn’t always the right path.
But patience can also become an excuse to stay in your comfort zone, to not venture into new territory.
This is my default. What about you?
I remind myself to always be making small steps in some direction, even if it’s not the one I prefer. If I’m waiting for one area to develop, at least I’m still making progress and not settling into a rut where I’ll wake up years later to find opportunity has passed me by.
