When was the last time you waited impatiently in line while someone, perhaps feeble and elderly or physically challenged, held you up from getting on with your lengthy to-do list? Did you snort and huff and puff muttering to yourself about your luck of choosing check-out lines or did you suddenly realize that someday you, too, might be dependent on the patience of strangers.
How often have you acted impatiently by honking your horn the instant the light changed or spoke sharply to someone who was slow to understand?  Does it matter?  Yes, it does.  When patience is running thin this rudeness usually occurs.  Behavior like this is counterproductive, making people angry or stubborn and uncooperative. 
Why not decide to become a more patient and develop different approaches to calm yourself in stressful situations.  It's not a guarantee, but the following techniques could help eliminate some impatience from your life or at least help to control most of it. 
Begin by allowing for a margin of error.  Impatient people hate to waste time, so they often schedule things too tightly, not allowing for delays.  They tend to budget the exact number of minutes that some thing should take, not figuring in that something unexpected could happen causing a delay.  It's always best to provide a margin for error.   And, if it's something you absolutely can't afford to miss, it pays to plan ahead an almost ridiculous amount of time. 
Meet me here next week for a few more tips for staying calm in this hectic world of ours.
