Nascar, Turtles, and Sharks... Oh My!

Lesser of Two Evils

Objects in the mirror are faster than they appear.

It amazes me that something so profound can come from a silly Nascar race. It's true though. We should never rely on what we've accomplished. We should always push for better... better selves, better intuition, better goals. If we don't, we might as well stand still and let the rest of the race pass us by, and that would be a pity.

It's okay to rest now and then. It's perfectly fine and human to say, "Hey, I did that well." Just mind you don't stand there admiring yourself for too long. The turtles are on their way. (Only somewhat obscure reference. Just because you don't get it doesn't mean I'm insane.)

Sharks have to keep swimming or they die. They even swim in their sleep. Okay, so I'm on a bit of a free-associative tangent today, but bear with me. It's going somewhere. Where was I? Keep swimming... right. We need forward movement or we'll stagnate, we'll die. It doesn't have to be a mad rush. Watch a nature show about sharks. They're hardly ever in a hurry.

Neither are turtles.

And they both get somewhere.

Excuse me. It's later than I think.
