THE TORTOISE & THE HARE

by | Inspiration, The Lills

The classic story of the tortoise and the hare is one of the best metaphors for life. In the story, a tortoise and a hare have a race. Everyone assumes the hare, being fast and agile, is going to win…right? Well, no. The overly confident hare makes detrimental missteps along the way and he loses the race to the slow, but steady tortoise.

The tortoise, takes his time. He understands how to reserve energy and where to expend it. He understands that the race is long and in order to beat the hare, he must be slow, steady and focused.

The world is full of hares and the hare mindset is to “get it done, go, go, go!” The problem with that ideology, is that some of the greatest things in life, take time. If we don’t take the time to proceed with care and mindfulness, we often speed by opportunities, get tripped up or exhaust ourselves by trying to make it to the finish line.
