The Power of Patience

serenity“We live in a world where we can get anything we want right away,” says Mary Jane Ryan, author of Power of Patience. “We’ve lost the capacity to wait without becoming agitated.”

Fast Company’s Stephanie Vozza speaks to Ryan in this article, and comes up with a quick guide (for the impatient) that offers seven tips for a calmer, more productive you.
