Impatience is not a lack of patience.

Let’s start with this fact, the costs of being impatient are immense. Impatience is not a lack of patience. It is the lack of passion. If you are unpassionate about something, it weakens your determination which affects your patience. There is a huge correlation between patience and passion. This pair has a substantial effect on most […]

Let’s agree on the definition and criteria first

He or she is very successful. What does success mean here? If the standard is not agreed upon, confusion wins and the conversation about it is a waste of time.
