Many people have a stressful workday at their job. Most likely their family life (with children) is also time consuming. The result is then "to be impatient" in general.
Well they are busy. So it might surprise you when I suggest that they take up more activities. But I suggest that they begin gardening, such as tomato growing.
Tomato growing will calm them and make them less impatient.
We live in a fast paced, fast forward, real-time, instant gratification, on-demand society these days. Everything seems to be 'faster, higher, better, quicker, and/or stronger'. Thus, we have come to expect quicker service, snap decisions, and immediate results.
These unrealistic expectations set us and others up for failure and disappointment. When our fast food isn't fast enough; the red light is too long; and Friday can't get here fast enough, we become disillusioned, disappointed, angry, anxious, and impatient.
I always chuckle at the speeding driver who passes me at 80 mph only to wind up right in front of me at the red light. Really, Mario Andretti wannabe?
It's time to slow it down just a little, live in the moment and breathe!
Thank you for your answer Melodywright, everyone seems to be catching up with the time. Everyone seems to be living for tomorrow instead of today.
I agree, liesl5858. Living for today is much more rewarding. Fully living in the moment, being mindful, and 'tuning in' to the present actually helps us move forward in a more productive and meaningful way.

Why do political people seem to demonize the opposition rather than discuss issues?I see this on both the right and the left and it drives me batty. Why do conservatives like to use "liberal" as a dirty word rather than debate issues on merit? It's easier to whine about liberal this...

Why do some people seem to attract bugs?I've always gotten bit by bugs like crazy and other people that are in the same place get no bug bites. People always said it must mean I'm really sweet.
