i see where you are coming from and it is true when you eat dinner first then dessert you have that taste last in your mouth but when you burp you taste the dinner and it completely ruins the dessert taste
if you eat dessert first then dinner and you burp you taste the dessert!! and it is a delightful surprise and hence you can have that taste last in your mouth PLUS you get to savor it longer so i think it is actually more efficient because you get what you want first and you get to taste it last
Agreeing with Mark. Sometimes what we want now we will not want later, and if you're waiting around for everything (patient in every aspect of your life) you will miss out on valuable experiences. Like Mark said, life is short, we're here to enjoy.
@ grace i completely agree with you about parents and patience but that is about the only thing that really needs patience (besides growing plants) other then that it is just laziness if you want something go get it and be actively involved
haha you are right i havent spent much time fixing micro computers but by fixing them you are actively doing something.
i think you are talking about patience in more of the general sense like when fixing something/ solving a problem/ or cooking. i am talking more in the since of "good things come to those who wait" or specific since. for example i want to become an architect and i am actively pursuing that dream by going to school and trying to get internships (calling places, sending them my resume and portfolio) even though i am having to take a different route then what i would like to take but i am sill pursuing it. compared to if i tried and failed and said oh well i guess right now isnt my time and wait
Well I went through the 'apply to medical school' hell three years in a row and finally made number 10 on the alternate list at Univ of So Cal. They told me they had taken at least 20 alternates every year for the past 20 but that year they took only three.
I lost my patience and decided to go do something else. So that's how I came to make computers work.
Patience does have its limits.
In a broad philosophical sense, I suppose waiting for a computer to do something is itself doing something but it is indistinguishable from doing NOTHING!
life is generally unpredictable. i can't speak for anyone else, but in my experience the more moderate i have kept my reactions to unpredictable negative life events (as opposed to PROactive with predictable life experiences – but that is a separate issue) the more positive overall experience I've had. i think in general people tend to react way too quickly and way too much.
i'll bet 100% of us can look back at something we've thrown a tantrum over or gotten into a worried frenzy over – yet in 6 months or a year (or whatever time frame) we can't believe we made such a fuss over. either the problem was not nearly as difficult to overcome or the negative effect on our life was far less than we feared.
