Hold Please

I had to call the bank this week. They put me on hold. The longer I waited the more frustrated I got. There are only so many times I can hear this.”Your call is very important to us. Hold please.” If my call was truly important, they would pick up sooner. I was on hold for a long time so I tried to stay busy. I got annoyed with the bank, put a load of laundry in the wash, clipped my fingernails, got annoyed with the bank again and finally decided that there had to be some hidden gem in this whole experience. I couldn’t think of any gems of great wisdom. There is no value in being stuck on hold with the bank for fifteen minutes.

This morning I found one. It’s easy to put yourself on hold. I’ll work on this goal later. Later. Next Month. Next Year. Later can easily become Never.

Take yourself off hold and start living your life!
