Impatience doesn’t make the success come any sooner. –singer/songwriter Rick Springfield, in his memoir “Late, Late at Night”
In some ways that quote is freeing. It allows me to confidently drop impatience, just in case I was subconsciously thinking it was helping.
In Rick’s autobiography, he talks about more than 4 albums he recorded that never made a big splash… and in some cases, never saw the light of day.
In one of his numerous dejected mind-slumps, he sought distraction in an artistic-stained-glass course.
Have you ever heard of his hit song, “Jessie’s Girl” ? It was based on a couple taking the same class.
Rick’s a millionaire many times over because he found a way to keep his mind buoyed while his apparent career was sinking… and to take inspiration from what he encountered.
I know there is a philosophy of “massive action” and “being in a hurry” in our profession. “Hurry” refers to YOUR speed. “Impatience” comes from anger at the slower speed of others.
You might have to detour and search for other people to work with, in groups of people you never previously considered, before you find someone who will match your speed… or exceed it.

P.S. I saw Rick in concert nearly 3 years ago… he walks in the audience on their chairs during one of his songs, shaking hands and hugging fans. That’s the way he prefers to connect with humanity… it’s amazing to see
