FINDING FAITH in PATIENCE… from The Daily Driver Project

What do you mean it can’t happen now? What do you mean this article isn’t already written?

Welcome to the thing I struggle with the most…

Patience in today’s society is something that many a person struggles with. You can get immediate satisfaction thanks to the internet. You can get things answered, you can purchase something… and depending on where you purchased it from, you can get it the same day or the next day. The world is moving towards getting everything immediately.

Now, I’m willing to wait for an order. I can wait in line. I can even wait for something I want to purchase (like new camera gear).

Where the patience disappears for me is when it comes to where I’m at with The Daily Driver Project. My goal has always been to make that my full-time job. To have it be everything that I do… every day.

So how do you find ways to build your patience? For each person it will be slightly different, but for me, I use a couple of things.

First I use small or short goals that I can accomplish. Getting things done and focusing on that goal keeps me moving forward.

The next is for the longer or bigger goals. I use a couple of things for this, but the biggest is just keeping your head down and putting in the work. You just look up every so often to make sure you’re still on the right path. I also chop the bigger goals into smaller ones so they are easier to accomplish.

As they say, patience is a virtue and I try to have that be a part of me. Learn to wait and put the work in to get you the things you want to get done.

Life is too short to be in that constant state of impatience. Take a breath and learn to wait for the things you want. It will make those things even more special when they finally come into your life.
