Quote:Re-Programming Our Response To Impatience
Despite our best efforts to schedule our impatience, we will find ourselves triggered out of the blue at times. And we want to make sure, in those cases, that we make good decisions.
What should we do when we find ourselves in traffic surrounded by clueless drivers? What should we do at the grocery store when the customer in line ahead of us pulls out a fistfull of coupons, fumbles with small change, and questions every other price as the clerk rings it up? What should we do while getting through an excruciating event we’re obliged to attend?
Here’s a list of things to try:
Take a deep breath.
Identify which goal is being frustrated.
Identify how the perceived costs of reaching that goal have risen.
Decide, calmly and rationally whether you should 1) try to find a shortcut, 2) switch goals, or 3) settle in and come to peace with the situation.
If you have decided to settle in and come to peace with the situation, then accept the increased costs, and change your mindset. Maybe even find a way to play a game within the game to keep your mind occupied while you wait.
And, with that, we’re (finally) at the end of the essay. Now go get on with the rest of your life!
