Learning Patience. Still, At This Age

Learning Patience. Still, At This Age

I heard a quote recently that blew. my. mind. It was by the successful business man and entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk. He said, "People overestimate what they can get done in a year, and underestimate what they can get done in ten. Wow. That is so what I needed to hear right now.

I've always been an impatient person. Well, let me be clear. Not impatient as in rude, at least I try not to be in the moment. What I mean is patient with myself. Patient with time. As my mom would say, I always wanted everything done yesterday.

I'm just not that good with waiting. But adulthood has mellowed me, a little. Maturity has showed me that not everything has to happen on my timeline. In fact, it often won't. And I had to learn to be okay with that without losing my determination or drive.
