Waiting and Waiting for hot water

The farther the sink or shower is from the water heater, the longer it takes for the water to heat up. sometimes it takes up to 2 minutes before there is hot water at any given sink or shower. How does one fix this so that hot water is almost automatic?

By installing a recirculating pump like the one shown Here and Here. These are not and endorsements just chosen to show examples.

Or.....by installing a second tank-type water heater that is closer to these fixtures.

Or....by installing a small (but adequately sized) flash-heater close to these fixtures.
