The Young and the Restless

Screen Shot 2018-01-20 at 10.59.53 AMI used to watch this soap opera religiously in the summertime. Is it still on?

Anyway, one of my friends recently told me I have no patience. Since said party reads this blog, I though I’d write a rebuttal.

Of course I have no patience. That’s because I’m a person who likes to get things done, and also doesn’t believe in perfection. There is no perfection. But, I do know there’s time. And time is always running out. So, patience, therefore, is not something I have…patience for. Because time is finite.

Entrepreneurs aren’t really patient, either. They know that the clock is constantly ticking. And in order to truly change the world, things need to get done. We can’t sit around and twiddle thumbs. That doesn’t get anything accomplished – beyond a good thumb workout.

So, the bigger message here: the next time someone tells you about your faults, think about them as strengths instead. Maybe they’re even your super powers. After all, they are part of what makes you uniquely you. So, wear that cape and own it!
