The other day, I went for my bike ride around my neighborhood. During my bike ride, I discovered that rather than waiting for what I want, I 'EXPECT' to receive what I want. When you expect something that you want, your emotions are heavily involved. It creates the feeling of already having it.
Waiting on the other hand implies that things take along time, and that things are slow. It implies passivity, and no work gets done. No action is taken while waiting either.
