The Word “Yet” Is a Beautiful Thing

First of all, HOORAY! I have a brand new website praise Jebus hallelujah! My old site was quickly becoming a hot mess disaster, so thank you to Keith at Buckle Up Studios for helping me out. Check it out and tell me what you think!

Anyway, I don’t know about you, but I’m not exactly the most patient person in the history of the planet. I want everything and I want it to happen immediately, even if I know that’s not realistic. Even when I’m working towards a goal, I still feel like I’m moving too slowly and that I’m lagging behind other people who are my age/in my field/etc.

That’s where the word “yet” comes into play. When you’re getting frustrated as you think to yourself “I haven’t found ‘The One'” or “I haven’t reached my career goals” or ” I don’t even know what I want to do with my career” just tack on the word “yet” to the end of that sentence and see how much better it feels.

“I haven’t found ‘The One’….yet”

“I haven’t reached my career goals….yet”

“I don’t even know what I want to do with my career….yet”

It adds a dimension of hope and helps to take the pressure off of you. Yeah okay, so you aren’t where you want to be right now. That doesn’t mean you never will be or that your current state is a permanent one. It’s just where you are right now. And that’s okay. No one who is wildly successful in business or madly in love or any of the other things that we all aspire to be started out that way. These things take time. They happen gradually. And keeping that concept of “yet” in mind helps to keep you patient as you wait for these things to grow and develop for you.

Just a little something I’ve realized.

Are you focused on getting things done right this second too? How do you manage it?
