(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.
