“Yes” Comes Right Away; “No” Never Comes.

For years, I've been calling my sister Elizabeth "my sister the sage," and I often quote her wise words -- on my blog, in my books, and in the podcast we host together.

She often says, "Oh, I'm not such a sage" -- but really, she is. She says such wise, memorable things. I run around after her, and write them down.

One of the most helpful observations she's made to me is "'Yes' comes right away; 'no' never comes."

I have found this to be so, so true.

She made this remark about getting news about whether a project would move forward at work -- and I've quoted her line in a work context.

But I also find it applies in my personal life. And when I'm waiting impatiently for an answer, and there's no answer, no answer, no answer...I remember, "'Yes' comes right away; 'no' never comes." Not always, certainly, but often.

Have you noticed this? Agree, disagree?
