1. The ability to tap into limitless patience
California life moves slow. Maybe it’s the year-round sunshine, or maybe there’s something in the water, but one thing is certain, newcomers will quickly realize waiting is a part of life on the Golden Coast. At first your emotions will range from annoyance at the overly chatty barista who took 10 minutes to make your latte, to seething rage at the 45 minutes it took you to drive 7 miles. Until one day, you are struck with a wave of California cool — a realization that being late is pro quo and waiting is an opportunity to catch up on your Snapchat game. Your newfound power may take longer to blossom depending on where you hail from, but once the transformation is complete Limitless Patience and an uncanny capability to make the most of waiting time will be yours on demand.
