Macro Patience & Micro Speed

Nikola Novakovic in Life

Hello there!

I've gotten really busy here in the past couple of months, so I did not had a chance to write a lot.

We all know that for anything amazing and awesome to happen time is an ingredient that must be present. It's inevitable. Whenever I heard the quote that is title of this post I instantly remembered Anthony Robbins saying:

Most people overestimate what they can do in a year and underestimate what they could do in a decade.

Let's brake down title of this blog post a bit.

So macro patience refers to always remembering that it takes time. And that it's not going to happen tomorrow. And that feeling frustrated because it is going to take time is silly, because you can't really change that.

Micro speed refers to even tough it takes a long time to achieve something just waiting for it to happen won't get you closer. You need to make sure you are doing all of the things you can today, to get to where you want to be.

Now the catch is when the frustration and stress kick in, because you're not there yet, to remember that it takes time and you're getting there.

I know I am guilty of not being patient. But patience is a skill and it can be learned. Be mindful about it. When you feel stressed out and frustrated because you're not there yet, just remember that
