Put yourself in a position where you can allow a strategy of patience to work for you, not against you.
- Have enough opportunities in development so any single one isn't that critical.
- Be far enough ahead in seeking knowledge that the learning curve doesn't have to be accelerated.
- Live on less than you can afford so money or fears related to it don't force bad decisions.
- Serve and cultivate a strong enough network that it's not necessary to pester any one person for a response to your needs.
Where has a strategy of patience paid off for you? - Mike Brown
