What do you do while you wait?

            Let’s think about all of the different times you have to wait in the average day.  If you’re an average American, in your whole life you will spend an average of six months waiting on a red light.  And that doesn’t count the time you sit in traffic jams on a freeway.  The next time you’re sitting at a red light just think about it—6 months of your life!

            And what about waiting on the telephone?  The average person spends 60 hours per year on hold.  That’s 2.5 days out of your year holding on the telephone.  And you can’t blame it all on businesses either.  Thanks to call waiting, you now wait on hold when you call a friend’s mobile phone or even your own home.

            So what do you do while you wait for those 6 months at a red light or those 60 hours a year on hold?  Have you tried using that time to focus your mind on the positive? Not that the light change but something really nice that happened that morning?  Not that your call get picked up, but so your attitude picks up?

            There’s always time to focus your thoughts on something positive. Just one more way you Live Positive today!
