Patience isn’t fun. Patience isn’t sexy. But patience is definitely important. It’s a really useful skill. And I think it makes you a better person – perhaps a more grateful one – if you practice it consistently.
There’s certainly something to be said for getting stuff done, but when things aren’t within your control, patience can make the difference between enjoying life and being anxious while you await what’s next.
We are in a period of patience right now. We are working our butts off hustling. Trying to get more music students. Finding folks interested in our online ukulele course when it’s ready. Continuing our work for existing virtual assistant and podcast clients while trying to find more of them. Continuing our creative projects, like our podcast. Growing our creative projects and, when inspiration hits, occasionally starting new ones.
We are tracking our progress, so we can celebrate milestones along the way. But this is the tough slog, if we let it be that.
But how can it be a tough slog, right? We’ve got gorgeous weather, plenty of Mexican food, friends and family and new places to explore. And we’ve got some resources to lean on, at least for a couple of months, while we keep building our businesses.
So I call upon patience for the long haul and enjoyment in the moment. As much as possible. Our lives are truly wonderful, and we look forward to continued growth and momentum. Patience.
