The older one gets the more they start to realize the value of patience. Value not just in the importance of staying one’s hand but value in the ability to facilitate great things through patience. In today’s society of instant gratification, the epitome of patience represents a span of sitting through commercials on tv or in the theater. One can forget about patience on the internet, the idea is practically non-existent. You have less than 5 seconds to catch someone’s attention on a web page or they are gone. Now if someone is there for more than a minute wow, that is pure gold!
