How not to wait patiently

I am an impatient person. A very, very impatient person.

I always want answers immediately and therefore spend far too much of my life staring at email inboxes or holding mobile phones willing the messages I’m waiting for to appear.

If only you could make things happen more quickly by desire alone, I’d fly through the world at breakneck speed. Instead, the only thing that increases is my frustration levels, and never has this been more apparent than when trying to buy a flat.

I think I might explode. Everything takes so long, and the stakes are so high – waiting for rejection letters is nothing compared to this. Anyone got any good tips for, you know, being less impatient?
