…because I find that, increasingly, the limits of my patience at work is being tested and pushed to the extremes. Like today, for instance, when I really felt like venting all my frustration, checked only by timely realizations that losing my cool isn’t going to help anything—or anyone for that matter— at all; not especially since I’m expected to captain of a ship I have to steer all at the same time.
So here’s to patience:
You must first have a lot of patience to learn to have patience.
- Stanislaw J. Lec, poet (1909-1966)
