A hare and a tortoise decide to have a race. The hare, who is known for his speed and agility, becomes overconfident and taunts the tortoise for being slow and clumsy. The tortoise, on the other hand, remains calm and focused, and accepts the challenge.
At the start of the race, the hare races ahead, leaving the tortoise far behind. Feeling confident of his abilities, the hare takes a nap midway through the race. When he wakes up, he is surprised to find that the tortoise has caught up to him and is close to the finish line. The hare races to catch up, but it is too late. The tortoise crosses the finish line first and wins the race. The hare ends up losing the race because he doesn't use his abilities to their full potential.

"…Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen." ~ Anne Lamott
