Strategic patience

I said few months ago that there are no short cuts for being an elite player. If you want something worth doing, you have to take the long way and armed yourself with patience.
Being patient is a skill, that’s for sure. However, you need to be patient strategically.
Sometimes impatient people are the ones that change the status quo.
I’m not talking about being reckless. You need to be patient and take your time to get wherever you plan to go. But impatient enough to distinguish whether you need to take immediate action or not.
Patience is a skill. However, when everything is clear in your mind, being impatience makes the difference.
