The Tortoise and the Hare

Do you remember Aesop’s Fable about the tortoise and hare? How the first one out of the traps thought he had the race in the bag, only to run out of steam and watch the careful, patient tortoise reach the finishing line with all his faculties intact?

I sometimes think of that wise old tortoise when life seems to be rushing past. It seems that “single tasking” – formerly known as “concentrating on one thing at a time” – is the new black in the business world. Perhaps patience will follow, making the tortoise current again.

He just keeps grinding on, confident in his heart of hearts that he will prevail. Maybe the hare will take a leaf out of his book one day. He might even develop a little empathy along the way.
