THE TRUTH ABOUT WAITING+

images

Wait: v. to use up time with minimal activities and desiring an important event to exist

Waiting is unfortunately a fact of life in the modern world. We sometimes wait in long lines to purchase something, we wait on dates to arrive or get ready to go out, we have to wait for someone important to stop talking, we wait on doctor appointments, and we wait for humans to arrive on time for a scheduled appointment.

Humans who are not punctual or don’t value someone else’s time are abundant in an increasingly irresponsible and uncaring society. Waiting is becoming an increasingly frequent occurrence in modern life and is the source of much angry frustration.

Waiting can also be pleasurable if you bring something with you to do while you are waiting. Today, bringing a smart phone with you may be all that you need to make an otherwise unpleasant waiting time a pleasure.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PROCRASTINATION

procrastinate-big

Procrastination: n. delaying doing a subset(s) and it is frequently habitual

We are all guilty of procrastination from time to time when we are confronted with having to do something unpleasant and decide to delay doing it as long as possible.

Procrastination can become a bad habit and it may extend to not wanting to make improvements in your life and putting off the attempts day after day and resulting in no progress at all but an addiction to daily mundane existence.

On the job procrastination can lead to losing your job in the long duration so procrastination is not recommended at work.

Procrastination about relatively unimportant things in your life may actually save you much time which you would otherwise waste. Meticulously cleaning on a daily basis is not that smart a usage of time and doing it once a week or once a month may be the smart thing to do and a smart usage of your valuable time.

Procrastinating until the last moment to do something important may put you in panic mode and not being confident that you can do what you have to do in time. You can procrastinate on doing unimportant things but if they are important procrastination can get you into much trouble and unhappiness.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PATIENCE

images

Modern society is very impatient. We want our food fast, we want fast money, fast conversation, fast relationships, fast entertainment, fast education, some want fast cars, and many want fast solutions to problems in life.

The result is a narcissistic feel good culture wanting instant gratification in almost everything. If we quickly don’t get what we want then we try to escape our felt confinement with addictive drugs or happy pills and easily succumb to other addictive behaviors such as pornography, impulsive shopping, gambling, and over eating.

Many of us don’t realize that selfcontrol and patiently working and planning ahead to reach worthwhile goals in life is much more important than living an impulsive largely irrational daily existence where one day is pretty much the same as the other day and no substantial progress is made.

Fewer and fewer take time out from the rat race to really analyze and think about the life which we are living and may actually want to live in the future.

Patience is not a virtue if you are just lounging around not doing much or just engaging in mostly trivial pleasure seeking pursuits. Patience is a virtue if you are using that time wisely to pursue your long duration goals as well as some short duration goals. Patiently working to get what you most value in life is the true key to successful and happy living in the long duration.

If you are not patiently learning new skills and new knowledge then you will probably be stuck in your rut on into the foreseeable future until some crisis happens in your life which makes you think about and maybe change your largely dysfunctional lifestyle of impulsive impatience.

I am not advocating that you patiently wait for good things to happen in your life. I am advocating that you patiently work and do things to increase the probability that good things will happen in your life not only in the short duration but also in the long duration.

Patience: n. a willingness to endure (suffering and/or provocation) and/or (delay and/or tediousness) and/or (incompetence and/or partence) and/or (doing with composure and/or doing with selfcontrol when trying to achieve a goal(s))

 

Partence: n. using up much time trying to achieve a goal(s)
