What to Do While You’re Waiting

Are you good at waiting?

Although things are slowly opening up after months of quarantine, many of us are still waiting. Waiting for our businesses to pick up, waiting until it’s safe to gather in groups, waiting to resume some sense of normalcy.

Like Tom Petty says, “Waiting is the hardest part.” Well, it is for me. Maybe it is for you, too. Whether you’re a musician, an entrepreneur, a creative, a job seeker, or even if you’re retired, there are things you could be doing now to gear up and move onto the Next Stage (See what I did there?).

Tune in for a few minutes of encouragement (and some drumming analogies):

Update: The next day after I posted this, I got the news that my hand drumming classes are resuming in just a few days! This further supports what I said in the video. Things can change quickly, so get ready! It also backs up what my shirt says: “Dare to hope.”

What are you working on during this quarantine period? Feel free to drop a comment below!
