At what point does it become counterproductive waiting for something to happen. Most people would agree that patience is a virtue but the virtue has an expiration date.

If I’ve spent two years waiting on something that could possibly happen does that mean I’m still wasting my time? I think it’s all about taking the pros and cons into consideration and then making a decision– despite the fact that it’s with limited information.
