The Sign You're Waiting On

You’ve convinced yourself that the sign you’re waiting for is hiding beneath the clutter. Or that your inner soul isn’t at some mystic level of sign-receiving peace yet. Or that the formula for success is in the pages of a book collecting dust on your nightstand.

Seriously, if only the sign would stop taking its sweet time. You have a world to change, doesn’t the sign know that?

The sign you’re looking for is probably in your to-do list.

Do the next thing.
Then the next.
Then the next.

Dream, yes. But keep doing the next thing.

Dreamers who do find signs more often than those who mindlessly scroll through Instagram waiting for that elusive flash of inspiration.
