hello friends, I hear people saying that, they are waiting for the perfect time, to make a next move, or to start any work, i really wonder, does any perfect time exists to do any work? or just the people make excuses to postpone the work? I feel perfect time doesn't exist, we should stop waiting for it. Or is it lack of experience in life , makes me to think so, friends what do you think,please share your views

I think it does exist but you are the one who will make that perfect timing. Like for example when you are searching for a job, when you are in a good mood and ready for it and the one who interview you is somehow a compatible of you in terms of expression and views of life then that is a perfect timing. We feel it when it will happen that is why we pursue and we strive for it. Waiting a perfect moment without doing anything does not work that way. MAKE IT HAPPEN, MAKE THE PERFECT TIMING

Exactly. There are people who are more talented and more aggressive to us when it comes to job hunting so why wait. Life is a continuous process and we have to move fast or else others might get it from us. Like its already in front of us but because we are slow they get it from us. Nice talking to you

hi Prashu, right question, perfect time, think you are going to office or school at 9.00 so now what is the perfect time to reach there according to the travelling time between your place to the office,i do not know which community you are Hindu people see some thidhi when they wish to done important things, all are not good times and all are not bad times, we have to check the right time,even elections also fixed by them by knowing which time is suit for them getting votes and seats by pundits,have a nice day

Yes, there is. Perfect timing is very particular in sports. Aiming the arrow towards the bull's eye isn't enough. You also have to calibrate the wind. If you just point and shoot, you've already lost half your aim. In basketball, you just don't go diving out for the steal. You have to anticipate the right timing just when the offensive player passes the ball. It's also the same with blocking. In boxing, you have to set the right fake to bait your opponent for an attack, and leave him open for a counter-punch. I can still think of other ways for perfect timing besides its uses in sports, like entering the elevator. When you're caught up with a crowd and you really need to ride the elevator because you're already late. With the perfect timing, and angle, you can overpass other potential passengers in order to get into the elevator first.

That is so right prashu , now is the perfect time and if you dont grab it no time is perfect ! people keep postponing things when they are not sure of themselves, that's my experience.When you are definite, you just go ahead and do what you have to do.people do not realise that life is short and we have to make the best of it ,today and each day ...all the best and thanks for starting a nice discussion

For me,i think that the perfect timing means that you are fully prepared for everything that i gonna do.Sometimes waiting can cost all you opportunities and thus you may lose that.So grab that if you feel you are ready,thus no perfect time,it is just you to decide when you wants to make the move.

For me, timing comes on a case-to-case basis. It may not always be the PERFECT TIMING, but in some things, there's this right timing that applies too. Like when you want to tell something really personal to somebody but can't do so until you get that chance to be alone with him or her. Or to give out a bad news but not yet when the person concerned is really in a bad, bad mood. In which case, you kmust give it some time and just wait for the proper or right timing. Though when it comes to work, it may also depend on one's current situation. My cousin found it fulfilling to work as a service crew for a restaurant when she was still in college. She applied for a summer job but was trying to refuse to enroll to the next semester because she wanted to work already (she loved the taste of her first ever salary actually). I talked her into quitting her summer job and pursuing her profession by giving out the pro's and con's of what she was trying to do. Her parents can afford to send her to college so it's really a waste if she refused all that. Now, she is a full-pledged supervisor in one public office after graduating from a management course. On the other hand, my brother-in-law already had my sister pregnant and still claimed he was waiting for the right time before he finds a decent job. We all reacted in disappointment and thought he was just too lazy to work for his family. So before he knew and could refuse it, my mom already had him applied and accepted as a faculty in Qatar. We all were happy to see him go actually. It was better he had a job before their child comes to light than have my sister work for everything they need at home.

No I don't think there is a 'perfect time'. At least not all the time. I know this from living with some one whom keeps saying 'the time isn't right' blah, blah, blah as I work my butt off... But that tale is for another time. Now I don't think just rushing into stuff is a good idea, however honesty is always the best policy, and if the person doesn't want to work, or is afraid of something, then if they said so instead of 'waiting for the perfect time' it would decrease strife between themselves and whomever they are telling they are waiting to.

For me, the sentence "to wait for the perfect time" is the perfect way to procrastinate. I do it many times when I put off things that need to be done, but I don´t lie to myself: I´m not waiting for any time, I just don´t want to do that now.

Ithink of perfect timing differently than you do. I agree with you in the way you explained it BUT I feel that perfect timing is relative to WHEN things happen. Like waiting for the perfect time to have a baby is impssible, but when you hold that newborn in your arms that baby came just at the right time in your life to give you years of joy. That's how I see it.

There is never such thing as perfect timing. I have got a friend who is has been dating a woman who has lied to him and eventually started to treat him with a heart of ice. He has had enough. but he told me he was going to wait until after a wedding. Months later they just went on a holiday. He is just waiting for the perfect time to tell her that he has had enough. The way I see it, there is no perfect timing. If he is going to wait for the perfect timing, he will be with her regardless of the way she is treating him. But as a good friend would reacted, I don't mind if he does stay with her as there is a possibility he will, but I will always be there for him. He is a great friend who is like a brother to me.

I don't necessarily believe there's a perfect time but more of an ideal time. There always a chance somehow it'll go wrong.

Sometime you can wait forever for the timing just right. In life i agree that there is often things that gets in the way. So it is good to wait for things like if no money , than wait that it is there. Postponing work which kind of work, I mean if it is like the dishes well that can't wait forever and wither other work when it is vey important.

I am with you here. There is an exception, and that would be, for example, when you are waiting for investors, or honing a skill or craft until you were up to par with your objective. However, I do agree, the perfect time to start is NOW. There is o other time to begin other than now. Whether it is love, work, career, the time is now. NOW is the work for everything that you can do, it is now. I am working on my future as we speak now. Going to mylot, looking up others secrets for success. Never know where you find it! But you are right for the most part 'perfect timing does not exist'. Took edison thousands of tries before he got the light bulb just right. no perfect timing there, just keep trying over and over again. :)

Well, that ironically, in our everyday lives, we are always dealing with "the good and the bad weather." Ok, maybe will never be a time when everything will in the right direction, because, in our lives, we encounter always problems to solve! But only when these problems do not weigh that much, I say, then now is the right time to do something! I start to be really sick of spending my life doing spending all day in the same way, or (between ourselves) is not doing anything! Do I think that at the first opportunity that life can go, I must seize the moment! Will arrive?

Faster is not necessarily successful. You will lose if the requesting person's bad mood, to make a decision soon. While waiting for the right time, can do other productive work.
