Patience ~ Confucius
"Do not be desirous of having things done quickly. Do not look at small advantages. Desire to have things done quickly prevents their being done thoroughly. Looking at small advantages prevents great affairs from being accomplished."
This is a wonderful quote from Confucius. All too often today we feel rushed to meet deadlines or to simply check more items off our list. The reality is when we rush we fight against the natural rhythm of life and timing for things to be completed. When we force the issue we only experience anxiety, fear and indecision. Patience has immediate results and those results can be seen with peace of mind, confidence, and ease in making decisions.
When we allow the necessary time to complete a task great things can be the result. So try moving towards your true self and let go of trying to finish things quickly.
Have a patient filled day!
