Hi friends,

I know you all are fed up with the story of hare and tortoise and you goona kill me if one more time I just repeat that story but I couldn`t stop my self from telling you the story which I just used in one of my training sessions.

Please read the 2012 version of the story and your comments will be appreciated

As you are very well aware of the

1st time tortoise win

2nd time hare win

3rd time team win

But you know one last time the hare again decided to race with tortoise. He went up to the house of the tortoise and challenged him to race, As a man of integrity the tortoise obliged the hare , both started the race.................

The hare was running very fast and ahead but when as he was just near the finishing point , a thought crossed his mind and he stopped.

he started thinking “Am I justifying my capabilities or not ....?"

"I am doing so much hard work.....taking so much pain.......... for what?"

was the race worthy of the attention and time I devoted ?

What is the benefits of winning from a competitor who even can`t compete........?

He abandoned the idea of race right there and went in search of doing something meaningful and useful.

Moral of the story:

Stop following useless goals flawlessly

"There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all"

Dear Neeraj,
1st time tortoise win
2nd time hare win
3rd time team win
2012 version of the story says ''Stop following useless goals flawlessly''
When i read this do you know what i thought ''
“Everything happens for a reason. Every action has a reaction. Always remember that whats meant to be will always find a way to come about.”
I am not said you are wrong. . .
Keep on sharing. . .
