Default Poor, poor yeast

Well, I have a question for ya'll.

'm new to the forum and to brewing beer. I am making my first batch of beer, and am having trouble cooling it down. I mistakenly prepped my yeast way ahead of time. It's been over a hour since I prepped the yeast and it has been sitting out in a covered dish and my beer still is not at proper temperature. I'm guessing that this is way to long, but honestly have no clue. I am planning on throwing it in and seeing what it does and if it doesn't work, adding some more in a few days.

Any advice? Thanks
