Just before I went to the grocery story, I finished an article about how patience is becoming a lost art.  The message of the author was confirmed when I came upon this product in the aisle:

Note that there is no refrigeration: this is “fully cooked bacon” that comes in a box and takes 15-20 seconds to heat in the microwave before it is ready to eat.  Regular bacon only takes a few minutes, but apparently that is too long for some to wait.

Should your organization participate in the quest for speed or can you make yourself so valuable that you don’t need to be on the “instant” bandwagon?  You may want to read more tomorrow about why patience matters before you rush out and grab a box of bacon or decide to create the equivalent for your group!
