We have a lot of conscious and unconscious expectations about how long something is supposed to take. Once this expectation is not met we get impatient and frustrated with ourselves and others. When we understand that this is where our negative feelings come from we can let go of the idea about how long something is supposed to take and instead focus on what we can do to help the process along (not speed it up). If we can’t do anything, like for example when we’re waiting for the bus, we might as well observe that feeling rushed until it dissolves. Alternatively we can decide to do something else with our energy all together.
