for a strong, fast pick-me-up
Do you get frustrated at having to wait?
Time is money and you don’t like wasting either!
I used to get frustrated at having to wait – until I changed my attitude.
I use waiting time for creating time – and try to get creative in using the time in enjoyable yet “productive” ways.
I’m writing this post from Darwin (Australia) in a stop-over on a flight to Manila.
I’m doing an experiment with this post – to get the post out during this brief stop-over. I won’t have too much time – I will probably not have enough time. The time will pass too swiftly – and that’s a good thing.
The wi-fi here is slow – something that used to frustrate me too – but I’ve even changed my attitude towards that.
I used to get so frustrated at slow wi-fi.
Now, I see how many deep calming breaths I can get in while a page loads – or that “blue bar” fills up from left to right.
O.K. I’ve had enough of these deep, calming breaths while I wait for the pages to load!
Luckily, I have a book ready and I see how much I can read while waiting for the slow wi-fi.
I’m powering through this book! Maybe I’ll get in the whole book. 🙂
It’s all in your attitude!
So, I encourage you to try to turn waiting time into creating time – even if that “creating” is finding interesting things to do while you wait!
And mission accomplished! Post written and posted and plane boarding. Better go.

These days, lots of people and organisations need help with how to COPE with too much work, too much information, too many meetings, delivering difficult news, business writing etc. I like to help people COPE.
