We are renting out a part of the house, and the process of finding someone is a reminder for us in waiting for a clear YES. Our experiences in the past is that when there is a clear YES there from the beginning, it works out very well, and if there is not… if something is a little off in the beginning, then that something continues to be a little off throughout. Our hesitation turns out to be a warning signal we didn’t take seriously enough.
I find that to be true in general in my life. When there is a clear YES, it typically works out very well. And when there is not, something often continues to feel a little off.
So I have learned, whenever possible, to wait for that clear YES, even if it means waiting a little longer than what my personality would ideally like. It is worth it in the end.
