Waiting . . . . .
Unless we're actively doing something, we're always waiting for something. And even when we are working on a particular issue, and we're only working on 1 issue at a time (unless you're a super multi-tasker), we're waiting for multiple things from multiple sources so that we can get back and work on those issues.
So, the way I look at it - we're in perpetual "wait" mode ;o)
