The patience game

In the digital age of 'overnight' success stories such as Facebook, the hard slog is easily overlooked.

- James Dyson

The patience game is not very fun... until you win. Sometimes I get 'being patient' mixed up with 'waiting around.' The two are not the same.

The patience game is all about what you're doing while you're waiting. How are you setting yourself up so that when the time comes, you're ready for the moment? Waiting around is just waiting for something to fall in your lap, and then when it does, you don't know how to handle it.

We must get good at being patient and persistent with our work. If you can get good at this, you'll start winning more often.
