Turtles are slow.
Turtles are there for the long term. They become older than humans.
‘Slow’ and ‘Long term’ can be your biggest strengths.
Especially in a time when ‘Fast’ and ‘Short term’ are sold everywhere.
The great things in life are all slow, long-term projects.
Relationships, friendships, children, careers, health, connections in your community, companies.
But many other things in life also profit from a slow, long-term perspective. Great things are rarely accomplished in less than one year.
Think about this new thing you want to do.
How can you turn it into a slow, long-term project?
And if you can’t, are you sure it is important enough for you?
