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
