Waiting…seems like such a waste of time. But as someone once said, “Life is what happens while you’re waiting.” And it seems we are always waiting for something…Right now you may be waiting for that new job, or to hear how you did on an interview…what do you do while you wait?
Are you on a job search and you’re not sure what lies ahead or where to turn? Maybe it’s time to look at it as an adventure rather than a problem…are you heading in the right direction?
