We live in a world where we want instant gratification. We want our questions answered right now. We want results today. Companies must perform today or their stock price will fall. We want innovation now.

In reality the world does not work that quickly. The things that really last in life take time to build. Innovation takes time. The key to our success may just be having patience, patience with ourselves and with our circumstances. Edison stated it this way, “Many of life’s failures are experienced by people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

This video explains how being patient may be the key to our creativity and innovation.
