Have you ever found yourself saying something like this..."I really need to make a change, but the time just isn't right."
"The time isn't right." That short little phrase has the potential to keep you trapped in the wrong situation indefinitely. I see that all the time. One day slides into the next. One week slides into the next. One month slides into...well, you get the picture.
When someone says, "it's not the right time," there are two possibilities as to what they really mean:
1) There really *are* some things in the picture that make right now not the right time.
2) "It's not the right time" actually translates to, "this is kind of scary and looks like a lot of work, so maybe I'll do it later."
If you look at your situation and it's the former, I encourage you to define what "the right time" looks like. Ask yourself, why, specifically, is now not the right time? What needs to be different in order for it to be the right time? If you don't look at that very consciously, it's really easy for months and even years to slip past without making a change.
If you look at it honestly and realize that it's the latter possibility, I would encourage you to think seriously about taking action in spite of the discomfort. The truth is, the prospect of change never gets less comfortable - it's just that being in the wrong situation gets progressively more UNcomfortable. Using "the time isn't right" to procrastinate runs the risk of letting a less than preferable situation drag on, again, for months or even years.
