I've been moving too fast.
Hey guys, if there's one thing I learned today, it's that I was impatient. I was brain-vomiting ideas out of nowhere and it was a new experience. I didn't know how to handle it until I met a great person at IBM here. When I get impatient, I get impulsive, and that's when I start to contradict myself. There's a fine line between self-confidence and arrogance, and today, I crossed that threshold to the arrogance part. When I get arrogant, I stop listening and I disconnect to those around me.
What she taught me was that patience WAS efficiency and it is ABSOLUTELY necessary for communication to work too.
So for now, I need to just take some time to just shut up and and take a calm down for a bit. If you guys got any pointers to calm down, that'd be great! I naturally feel compulsive and excited, but I need to first show people I can tame this beast of mine and work WITH others, not AGAINST others.
Anyways, thought everyone should know this. What helped me connect back to others was when someone started to listen and smack some sense back into you to reality.
Closing Statement from James Zhang
You're exactly right! Most people think waiting is boring. So how do we make it not boring when waiting at the DMV for 50 hours?
