Your Success Thought on "Patience"
January 18, 2006
An intriguing ‘impatience’ theme has surfaced for numerous clients lately. It’s fascinating to see how 'impatience' viscously blocks clear thinking for such diverse individuals as physicians, CEO's and marketing execs. Impatience in no way contributes to productivity, joy or healthy relationships.
Here’s my typical coaching dialog:
St. Augustine said: “Patience is the companion of wisdom.” A Dutch proverb agrees: “A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains.” According to Michelangelo: “Genius is eternal patience.”
What is your level of patience? How well does that work for you? Impatience has never been considered to be a virtue, though some of us treat it as such. New clients proudly say that they are impatient prior to learning the costs.
As you enter a year of attaining your goals, please take this one week to learn more about your level of patience. It is not uncommon to be patient in some areas of life and not in others. What is the most important thing to learn about your patience this week?
Enjoy your discoveries and have a grand week!
