Here's a small thing I read this morning:

A Zen master out for a walk with one of his students pointed out a fox chasing a rabbit.

"According to an ancient fable, the rabbit will get away from the fox," the master said.

"Not so," replied the student. "The fox is faster."

"But the rabbit will elude him," insisted the master.

"Why are you so certain ?" asked the student.

"Because the fox is running for his dinner and the rabbit is running for his life," answered the master.


I really like this story but what message do you get from it ?

A fox is faster than a rabbit by a decent amount, but whats the terrain like? Is there places for the rabbit to evade and hide in? I need answers before I can answer sir! laugh.gif

The story makes me feel that doing something faster isn't always better.

In my opinion it means if something really means a lot to you and you make it your top priority, you'll follow through and will achieve your goal eventually. If it isn't and you can "survive" without it and find something else that looks important to you, you'll quit and chase after something else.

Someone here has this nice signature saying: "If the need is deep, you will find a way. If it isn't, you'll find an excuse." One of the best quotes ever. That's why I'm heading off to the gym now laugh.gif
