I realized long ago, impatience gets me nothing but frustrated, (more frustrated), sometimes we all slip up, (I did yesterday), I realized it soon after and re-adjusted myself and the reason I was impatient. My daughter is the most impatient person, she's a lot like I was back at her age (31) with 3 children, understandable of course. But trying to help her realize it only makes her blood pressure go up, her body reacts by getting headaches, and there is absolutely nothing to gain by being impatient. This article came along just in time for me, and her!

I respectfully disagree with you, and agree with the author. My stepson is a highly motivated, very successful student and athlete...but he utterly lacks awe or empathy. So far, the only thing he seems to notice or respect in others is wealth, power, and to a lesser extent, intelligence and breadth of knowledge. We continue to try to help him see beyond himself and find inspirational experiences, views, people...but he is not moved by much! So far, our best successes have been with introducing him to successful professionals who pooh-pooh Rolexes and instead support good works. He doesn't understand them and thinks they are misguided, but at least he seems to be intrigued by them.
