Lessons from the "Hare and Tortoise" story

All of us know the phrase "Slow and Steady wins the race", but most of the times,the reverse holds true especially in business[First Mover advantage].Apple entered the Portable Player Bandwagon very late yet, it still rules the market with it's revolutionary iPod [Slow may sometimes be the most Steady smile].

Teams have become important rather than individual performers and the same is shown in the improvised version of the "Hare and Tortoise" story shown below[must read for anyone in the corporate or a business environment] :


As shown in the presentation, some of the key learnings from the "Hare and Tortoise" story are:
  • Never give up when faced with failure.
  • Fast and consistent would always beat the slow and steady [but may not always be true].
  • Work to your competencies.
  • Compete against a situation , not against a rival smile.
  • Team work always creates wonders than individual performers.

Yes, I can see those points … A good reminder for many of us here.

A deep dive into yourself, what I say, it is important to hold your nerves and convert each of the failures to a big lesson for the next step. You have lost is never a question to answer but you have gained the experience ...

Rustic Living Room Furniture sets augment the overall beauty of any room. With various room decoration items and gadgets flooding the market, it may sometimes be very confusing as what furniture’s to select for your living rooms - furniture’s which suit your tastes, match your room's environment and of course meet your budget! However, rustic furniture sets have an all-time appeal because of their simple yet versatile designs and light-weight (can easily be shifted from one room to other). http://rustic-living-room-furniture.blogspot.com
