We've all fallen victim to the phrase "I am waiting on the right time" in one way or another. Either we waited on taking action, or someone we know waited to take action themselves. This could be you waiting for the right time for initiating conversation with your crush, asking for a job promotion, or even confronting someone over a disagreement. Waiting for the right time can sometimes take over our life, as we let the opportunities in our life pass us by day by day. In this article I will be discussing the importance of timing and how to find the right time.
Timing Is Everything
Timing can take a "no" to a "yes", a "are you kidding me" to a "of course", even a "I hate you" to a "I love you". I am sure we have all been there. When we acted upon a situation and it resulted in a negative response, later realizing that the response could have been different if different actions were taken. Even the same actions could have been taken, yet at a different time could have resulted in that better response. Things that affects your timing could be a cool-down period someone has when upset, a delayed attachment (takes someone longer to get closer to you), or any emotional waves from day to day (or hour to hour). Timing can be crucial, but is it required to take action? If so, is it possible to find the right timing?
Timing Is Improbable
In a world full of reaction, taking action can sometimes misaligned with the timing of others. You see, every moment is the time to take action if you are the only person involved. With every person involved, finding the right timing becomes more and more improbable. It's possible, it just becomes less likely to happen. With the probability of the right timing diminishing, sometimes we have to create our own timing. Why? Because timing, after all, is created by the situation....not time itself.
Timing Is Created By Creating Opportunity
Time in itself is irrelevant. Time, much like the situation you are in, was created. Situations are created by taking action towards an opportunity or reacting towards someone elses actions. In order to find the right time, we must create the right opportunity. This can be anywhere from taking your date to the right environment before dropping the first "I love you", sitting a friend/partner down in a comfortable and calm area for a talk, or asking to set up a meeting with your boss for an important talk (either asking for promotion or giving your 2 weeks notice). Much like time, opportunity is created. Timing is created by creating opportunity. We all fall victim to watching the time pass us by, because every moment is the opportunity to create timing...but will you take it? It is up to you to create or wait longer.
Timing is everything. Unfortunately, a lot of people fall victim to the idea that timing must be waited on. Timing is important, but it is also improbable. Finding and waiting are two different things. By waiting on the right timing, we can find ourselves sitting and watching as the opportunities pass us by. By creating and taking the opportunities necessary, we can create and find the right timing for our actions. Actions build upon themselves, so we must take the steps necessary to turn any situation around. We create the opportunity, which can create the right timing, we create the life we want. We create the life we want by first creating and then taking the opportunity from every moment available to us. The question is, what will you create now?
