Some of us are very good at waiting, particularly if we have held onto a dream or a particular desire for a long time. We have become accustomed to waiting, and so it is no difficulty to wait a little bit longer. However, some of us are just crazy when we have to wait. Usually, these are the people who are good at getting things done, are never at a loss for words or something to fix a problem, and who are doers rather than thinkers or talkers.
Of course, there are times when you may use waiting as an excuse, but more often than not, you are simply not ready, emotionally, psychologically, or the timing just isn’t right in your mind, and so waiting is still a good default position to take if you are unsure about something.
Waiting is a very good tolerance to have when you are a schedule oriented person and things don’t turn out exactly like you would like for them to turn out. You may be rather obsessed about keeping to your schedule, but there are times when waiting is good, and it may be a chance for you to get something else done (or to relax and catch your breath) while you are waiting, perhaps less than patiently.
At work, you have to put up with a lot of hurry-up-and-wait situations if you have to depend upon other people who are less ambitious or simply less obviously active than you are. If you have methodical team members, you may be the go-and-get-it guy and other members of your team may comprise of the thoughtful creative and the ambitiously cautious sides of the equation. Everyone is needed, but you may understand your strengths a little better now.
If you find one or more of your employees behaving in a suspiciously impatient manner, such as being jittery, ultra high energy for hours on time, and unable to focus clearly, they may be under the influence of illicit drugs while at work. This is a dangerous situation which requires your immediate attention.
