The Tortoise and the Hare Once upon a time a tortoise and a hare had an argument about who was faster They decided to settle the argument with a race They agreed on a route and started off the race The hare shot ahead and ran briskly for some time Then seeing that he was far ahead of the tortoise he thought hed sit under a tree for some time and relax before continuing the race He sat under the tree and soon fell asleep The tortoise plodding on overtook him and soon finished the race emerging as the undisputed champ The hare woke up and realized that hed lost the race The moral of the story is that slow and steady wins the race This is the version of the story that weve all grown up with But then recently someone told me a more interesting version of this story It continues The hare was disappointed at losing the race and he did some soul-searching He realized that hed lost the race only because he had been overconfident careless and lax If he had not taken things for granted theres no way the tortoise could have beaten him So he challenged the tortoise to another race The tortoise agreed This time the hare went all out and ran without stopping from start to finish He won by several miles The moral of the story Fast and consistent will always beat the slow and steady If you have two people in your organization one slow methodical and reliable and the other fast and still reliable at what he does the fast and reliable chap will consistently climb the organizational ladder faster than the slow methodical chap Its good to be slow and steady but its better to be fast and reliable
