Coach Scott Oatsvall of LT360 made the following observation about "waiting":
Are you waiting for something in your life right now? One thing I’ve learned is that waiting is not a spectator sport. When we’re waiting for a breakthrough or an opportunity or a door to open for us, we need to be active in that waiting. We need to speak positive like we KNOW its going to happen. We need to act like it’s going to happen. We need to work like its going to happen. Most importantly we need to believe and expect it to happen!
It’s just like when you’re expecting a guest in your house. You don’t wait until they show up before you decide to start cleaning the house in preparation for their visit. No, you start days and sometimes weeks in advance. You make sure the house is clean. You go to the grocery store and get the necessary supplies and food you may need for their visit.
At Sabbatical Search, we understand that the time between work assignments in a "God-gifted" time to accomplish some specific purposes. Our waiting for our next assignment is by definition filled with activity. We need to be expanding our network of connections. This requires research into with whom we should be meeting, participating in 20 minute coffees, writing thank you notes and following up. We need to be sharpening technical skills, including taking courses and sitting for certifications. We need to actively be spending time with our Heavenly Father to understand how He intends for us to exhibit the passion He has placed inside us.
Clearly, the waiting period of our Sabbatical Search is filled with activities for us to pursue!
