where has patience gone

I've noticed in the past few years that I have been doing research assignments, that younger people are getting more and more impatient these days. No one is willing to wait even a little bit for anything, everything is to be done and had at this very instant. This can be put to every aspect of their lives, weather it's instant weight loss with hgh supplements or instant riches with fly-by-night schemes to get rich quick. Patience seems to be a virtue completely lost on the current generation.

True.. The reason could be that the environment around us is so fast as well.. Satellites cellphones social networking groups have increased and communication between two individuals that used to take days or even months has become seconds now. Fast paced world - ppl will become impatient.. and will expect faster results.Its always good to slow down..

Yup, the younger generation has grown with instant gratification for everything. It's the environment around them and the fact that cell phones/FB/Twitter all provide instant responses. Note that their attention span is also very short!
