I’m sure you’ve heard this quote before ~ “Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans".
It reminds me of another saying ~ "A watched pot never boils".
We want things immediate, and impatience starts settling in as more time goes by.
Your wife or girlfriend is carrying your first child, and three months haven't passed yet, and you find yourself at times, expecting the baby any day.
Or you start your first Savings Account, and get disappointed with each statement when you look at the dollar amount, expecting it to be higher.
There are Laws of time and measurements that are above the laws that are passed by government entities. Nor can government entities pass Laws to void these Laws. Laws such as the Law of gravity, "What goes up, must come down". Or the Law of Nature, that there is a certain amount of weeks for all forms of life, gives birth to their new born. Or the Law of Banking and Finance, the rule of 72, which dictates the growth on the investment of your savings.
I have been guilty many times, wanting immediate results. Especially when I was given the task by past employers to increase revenue.
You design a plan, work the plan, and want immediate results. Like wanting to see the results today!
It doesn't work that way though. There will be some results today. But most results, are at least three weeks away, at best.
The best thing to do, is do the same as what the doctor tells you to do when go for your checkup. If there isn't any negative results coming from the lab, he says "Keep doing what you're doing".
So keep doing what you're doing. Fill the pot with water, put it on the burner, turn the burner to the desired setting, and the pot will boil without any help from you standing over it.
Stay busy though, because “Life happens when you’re busy making other plans”.
