Yep. He's one
Unfortunately a good number (though not all thankfully) of people come from a thought process of being in what I term, the aspirin society. They are used to immediate gratification and results. Take an aspirin and in 20 minutes you feel better. They expect the 20 minute solution to all things. Patience and perseverance, tenacity, time and teamwork are out the door. That easy solution...it's coming. When it doesn't, well it's on to the next thing as the former was unsolvable or not their thing. They quit the team mid-season. Leave their workmates hanging. Now, I'm not stating to stick with a negative situation forever or that there are not times to move on; however, the propensity to just quit or to give up at the face of a challenge --- it's catching. As you point out...some just want easy. Easy won't fix everything. Our country was not built upon easy. T3 (I'm glad aspirin works...it's just not a life moto!)
The world? LOL .. that would apply to a large portion of the population .... don't want to be fixed unless it is easy .. like taking a pill
Human nature, funny thing, everybody has it, but only certain people can be blamed for it , or so it would seem.
Point! Yet we refuse hold them to the fire, for all the flames.....
