This passage is my take away from an inspiring article written by a neurosurgeon who died @ 37. In this article he explains about doing an operation, which applies in many parts of our life.
There are two strategies to cutting the time short, like the tortoise and the hare. The hare moves as fast as possible, hands a blur, instruments clattering, falling to the floor; the skin slips open like a curtain, the skull flap is on the tray before the bone dust settles. But the opening might need to be expanded a centimetre here or there because it’s not optimally placed. The tortoise proceeds deliberately, with no wasted movements, measuring twice, cutting once. No step of the operation needs revisiting; everything proceeds in orderly fashion. If the hare makes too many minor missteps and has to keep adjusting, the tortoise wins. If the tortoise spends too much time planning each step, the hare wins.
This a very inspiring outlook on how to live our life….will for sure improve your perspective of life. I took many lessons from this article. Above takeaway is more related to our day to day operations.
May his soul rest in peace.
