When we’re impatient it’s that we believe it’s not going to work. Or that the plan is changing. Or that we’re not good enough. It’s not one tension it’s many.
This is the reason there is so much impatience in the world, nearly any doubt can set it off. There is a reason the wise old master is always portrayed as patient. He is confident.
If I had to find an antonym to impatience that isn’t patience, it would be confidence. Think about that as you work. Notice it in people you work with and use it to your advantage. If someone is impatient find out what they need, why they are worried and how you can help.
