rome wasn’t built in a day

i used to have quotes and images in my office, to remind me, like:

  • first things first, but not necessarily in that order, from dr who [to remind me to keep perspective]
  • a picture of the andromeda galaxy with a sticky note: ‘<=== west wing’ [to remind me to keep wonder as well as perspective]
  • another picture, of the colosseum. i added: ‘rome wasn’t built in a day’–[to remind me to keep patience]

my impatience can cause all sorts of trouble:

  • frustration and anger
  • a desire to control the uncontrollable
  • a sense of unreality
  • misjudging people and situations

who wants that?
