Active Patience vs Passive Patience | "Stand in the Traffic" to get what you want...

Inspired by Shane Parrish of Farnham Street blog... @farnamstreet3661
“Patience is not passive, on the contrary, it is concentrated strength.” ― Bruce Lee

Passive patience is waiting for the world to give you the thing you want. Active patience is different. Active patience demands action and intention, even while waiting for results.

Active patience puts you in the best position to get what you want. There is almost always an action you can take to improve the odds. Active in the moment but patient with the results.

What is Persuasion?
* What does it take to move people to action?
* What does it take to have impact when you communicate?
* How can I inspire the people around me to be the best version of themselves?
These are questions that I answer. I answer these questions with tools that work for politicians, business leaders, entrepreneurs and professors.
