It's a good beginning. Then stop being attached to non-attachment. And finally, don't create a concept of not being attached to non-attachment. So says Baizhang.

Being patient is good. Waiting for enlightenment is delusion and incorrect practice. The patience to practise in Zen is, however, the patience of non-production of phenomena (anutpattika-dharma-ksanti). That is seeing emptiness without fear, letting go without worry.

In a specific book it says something called -dana prajna paramita- , in the section discussing attachment and non-attachment.

Generosity and wisdom perfections. There are six perfections (pāramitās), the foundation of bodhisattva morality.

They include giving, virtue, patience, effort, mindfulness/meditation and wisdom in that order.
