Agree or Disagree: Impatience is a virtue


It has often been said that patience is a virtue. Some believe that women have more patience than men. But that is NOT what we are discussing here.

What we are discussing is impatience. Or maybe a better way to say it is being patient for too long.

I think everyone can admit to getting impatient while you are waiting in traffic.  Or,waiting for your order at a restaurant.  It’s happened to all of us.

But what about things that are more life-altering or life impacting? Things like waiting for a job promotion that you have waited years for? Or, starting up and succeeding at that business you have dreamed about? Or a family member or a friend struggling with something and not doing anything about it? As you watch them waste their life away.

Where is your line of patience/impatience? How do you know how long is too long?

I leave you with a quote to consider.

“The wisest are the most annoyed at the loss of time.” 
― Dante Alighieri
