About Impatience

(Collaboration post with Steve)

People are so impatient these days. It can be seen all over, in stores, restaurants, at work.  It is something that keeps getting worse. People don’t even want to read anything longer than a short paragraph now, sometimes only the headlines of an article.

Why? I think a big part of the problem is our modern technology, which has made things easier and faster. But we are now conditioned to having things done so fast that if something doesn’t happen quickly, people get impatient. Not that long ago email was considered a fast way to communicate, now it is too slow for most people so they don’t even want to use it anymore.  It has to be done now, not a minute from now.

That idea has permeated our whole society. So when things happen to make something slower people become impatient and that quickly leads to anger and fighting. Thanks to technology we have more free time than ever before in history, but it comes with a price. We have become slaves to time, so we become impatient when something interferes with our time.

Patience is something very difficult to acquire. In modern days we can have everything fast, accessible. People get use to it and can’t wait anymore. It dosn t help as it give frustration, angriness and stress.

You can t expect to reach a goal in a blink, need to work for it, to give your best, to deserve and earn it. And maybe to try again if necessary.

The key of success is the patience and motivation. Its something we should teach to the kids at the earliest age because its the most impatient person. If you make them use to have anything what they want when they want it wont help them, it will give them bad character and selfish attitude in the future.

  1. In some ways , right because it is the fast paced aged .
    But this is somehow too general and still some people work 40 , 50 or 60 hours per week to live . Sometimes , Technology requires patience, technical skills and knowledge to be repaired , maintained and/ or upgraded…
    Everything has positives and negatives…In some ways , it is easier but other ways , it requires more effort depending on the situation…

  2. It’s not just people getting used to getting what they want instaneously that feeds the ecosystem, it’s also the pressure on everyone to deliver instantaneously in order to compete for business, jobs, attention, etc. That pressure also makes people impatient with others and it feeds into the cycle.

      1. Thanks! I also often do these reflections, but I can’t find a solution. I try to slow down the pace, but then there are those who take me for sloth. And it’s not nice. I’m just trying to live the present with awareness.
        Have a good evening!

The answer was, oh no, was just trying to find out if you want to go out later😂

  3. Very true! Every morning going to work, people are surpassing me to the left and to the right, because they are in a hurry, because they cannot wait (I’m quite in a good shape and I don’t walk slow so they need to run actually to be able to pass me 🙂 at the traffic light they go with red because they can’t wait, at the supermarket they go in front of you because they can’t wait…and I’ve always wondered why they act like this? Is because they don’t have patience to do anything….
    People wants everything now, fast and the problem is, they don’t realize that actually their life is passing by now and fast….and sadly they’re too busy being impatient…
