Hurry is the great enemy of our souls - John Ortberg
I'm always running around and don't often give myself space or build in extra time for anything else. So my temper is shorter when things get in my way, the trains run late or something interrupts where I'm going. In an attempt to build my compassion, I think I'll start by trying to build more time into my day. Take out the hurry. It probably means getting less done, maybe being a little less efficient - but hopefully that results in having time to be compassionate.
