One Minute Ramble: Impatience

14 comments

One of my work colleagues was recently talking about how impatient people are nowadays. And it got me thinking that that is exactly how the majority of people seem to be running their lives now. He was going on about social media, how everyone is so wrapped up in it, and everything is there in an instant, they aren’t fine with waiting for anything any more, or being patient. Now, I must admit I can be a little impatient. I can also admit that I do not use social media (apart from blogging, which, to me, only touches social media in the peripherals). You can see impatience everywhere. You don’t even need to think about looking for it, something will highlight someone’s impatience within a matter of seconds.

So, I’m doing a little experiment. Here I go again. I’m going to take things nice and slow for the next few days. I’m sure I’m going to annoy some impatient people, but I annoy them when I’m not taking things slowly, so what’s new?

The only thing now is… I can’t wait to get started with the experiment. Sigh.

Not off to a good start, am I?

Time’s of the essence
As I do four things at once
None done very well

Why take it easy
When there’s so much fun to have
Joining the rat race

I’d love to eat food
But I just swallow and run
And I have no taste

  1. The era of instant gratification….It’s why reality tv is so popular, it’s in the moment, unfolding live before your eyes. I don’t know, I tend to think it takes the magic out of life….Christmas would not have been Christmas if we as kids had not been made to wait for it to come….. VK 🙂
