A person with insight and skill in any large organization must learn how to be patient. It takes time to persuade, even if the virtues of a proposal seem self-evident. Furthermore, hostile political factions may be lurking and it is much easier to strangle a new idea than to boost one.

Rushing may feel good but, unless there is savvy guidance, it may merely ensure a faster trip to a quagmire. A guide who knows the terrain and the likely avenues of attack should be found and awarded close attention.

Patience is not indecision. It can be a form of boldness.
