Have you ever heard, “Life is a marathon, not a sprint.” Interesting stories like the tortoise and the hare is a perfect example modern day living. It’s no secret we want everything fast – fast Internet, speedy cars, quick projects, rapid weightloss and life hacks.
Let me say that if nature hasn’t discovered a hack to the death and rebirthing cycle, humans are no exceptions. We can be more efficient at things, but slowing down is necessary at life. An artist once told me that in order to be creative and produce art, one must slow down, relax and detach from the world.
And maybe the western world needs more of that. For the tortoise and the hare, think about how much the tortoise got to see, touch, smell and experience on his slow walk to the finish line. So, why not stop and smell the roses on your next walk outdoors.
