If our attention spans decrease, so our chance to learn. Sometimes great knowledge is not shown in the most effective way and long formats discourage enough reading or listening time to reach critical mass.
Now imagine how hard it is to learn when we need to do it from a painful or uncomfortable way...
So the question is: How patient have you been in order to learn what you need to learn?
Even if it not requiring reading or mental activity at all, connecting with our intuition and meditating still takes good time and effort.
Sometimes you have to be able to listen or stay until the end to grasp a few pearls of wisdom, even if you don't agree with most of the content.
So learning requires patience and impatient people learn less, hence accidents, conflicts and drama show up more often in their lives.
Intuition requires patience too, hence impatient people screw up more times. Wisdom, knowledge, intuition, results and learning have all a common ground in patience.
It's worth a try; I leave you with some quotes:
“Patience is the companion of wisdom.” ~ St. Augustine
“Genius is nothing but a great aptitude for patience.” ~ George-Louis de Buffon
“Why is patience so important?" "Because it makes us pay attention.” - Paulo Coelho
