Life is full of paradoxes that some say require balancing; however accepting an appropriate location on the paradox continuum, when dealing with the paradox conundrum, may be as good as it gets! An example of such a paradox follows:
- Patience is a Virtue
- Patience is a Curse
In life, one critical factor for success is taking action. More importantly though, it is critical to take action at the appropriate time in order to achieve the optimal outcome. Sometimes it is important to be Patient, as an action in haste can have negative consequences. However it is equally important, at other times, to step-up and take action, as no action can also have negative consequences. The challenge, of course, is having the insight to know when to act quickly versus when to restrain from action until a more appropriate time.
