Step by step patience activity for someone in your own life who triggers your impatience:
1. Accept it as a given that your impatience is the problem and that you need to take at least one step toward being more patient.
2. Ask: "Who is this person? How can I identify with him or her? Why is he or she deserving of my patience?"
3. Decide on - and commit to - at least one specific step you can take toward this person to demonstrate your active patience.
