Patience is a hard skill to learn sometimes especially when we live in a time where
we can often access information instantaneously; at our finger tips.
Sometimes, we have to work with difficult colleagues and clients.
It can be really hard to stay patient when it seems like certain people
just won’t listen to what you have to say.
However, patience is important if we are going to be successful.
Here are some ways that you can develop patience:
1. Breathe – Count to 10 and take a deep breath. This can help you calm down
and help you to not yell even when you feel like it.
2. Whisper. – When you feel like you are going to yell, instead lower your voice
3. Role play situations that may cause you to lose your patience. – This can
help you to learn how to stay calm during those situations.
4. Step away for a minute. – Take a walk, make cards, go outside and enjoy nature.
Close your door. This is not always possible of course depending on the situation,
but it can help you to stay calm during a very hard situation.

Remember that no one is perfect and can be patient 100% of the time.
However, please remember to apologize to the person you might have snapped at
when you lost your patience right after it happened.
