An over confident man will run headlong to his demise; whereas the cautious man succeeds. ~ ME
I was conversing with a young man the other day who told me about how he got cocky in a business he started and became over extended and then his business failed. It reminded me of a fable and so I told him “That is classic Tortoise and Hare.”
“Huh?” he replied.
“Aesop’s Fables” I said.
“Who is that?” he asked.
So I told him the fable of the over confident hare racing the tortoise who took things at a steady pace. When I finished he said “That’s stupid, turtles and rabbits don’t interact.”
I’m still shaking my head.
