Everything must happen in its own time, right now -- you cannot rush things, even if you think it's for the best. Everyone has a different agenda, and you have to respect the fact that they are not on the same time schedule as you. This rule applies to social engagements, but even more so to career-related events or projects. Even if you are the big boss, you simply can't push people to deliver before they can. Learning to have patience will help you learn how to have accurate expectations.
