A tweet yesterday said that entrepreneurs are patient and impatient at the same time.

And that resonated with me. I agree with it. And also believe that the patience impatience directed at the right things works wonders. And if misdirected can backfire.

Impatience with finding the truth will work.

Impatience with people won’t.

Impatience with fixing the errors will work.

Impatience with getting results won’t.

Patience with customers will work.

Patience with the version you want to sell won’t.

Patience with spending money will work.

Patience with wasting money won’t.

Entrepreneurs: Impatient with action. Patient with results.
