When Waiting Becomes Weighting

I’ve just been through a long recruitment process where my patience and sanity was tested – by me.

Waiting is not my favourite thing to do because I’m not very good at it. I get all tense, uncomfortable and generally blah. For me waiting is like weighting! A huge, heavy, unresolved creature sits on my shoulders making everything I do really hard.

The hardest thing for me is that I have no control over the waiting, it has to happen and it will end when someone else makes the decision that it is time. So, I sit and wonder, will I make contact? and if I do will I seem desperate and impatient? Or will I just sit back and act cool? Who will I be?????? Am I going insane???

The thing I re-learned during this current experience is that Doris Day was right – what will be, will be. I need to let go and get on. Easier said than done, right?

It’s over now and the outcome was positive – I got the job! I did spend a lot of time in my head though that was not necessary and didn’t change the outcome.

Now I have to wait to start!!!!!

Do you view waiting as weighting?

What tactics do you have to manage the waiting process?

If you were in a position to make waiting a little easier on a person, what would you do?
