Yes, patience is very important. Everything takes time. Nothing can be achieved instantly. Patience helps to wait for things. If we are not patient, we tend to finish things hurriedly, which spoils things.

Question: How to teach children patience?
They can be taught in many ways. Parents can become good role models for them and tell them nicely that everything takes time. They can also be taught through stories such as the hare and the tortoise. The hare runs fast and is not patient, whereas the tortoise patiently and slowly completes the race without resting and wins ultimately. Children can be taught that even if someone is better than them at something, they can still beat that person by their perseverance and patience.
