Time Management vs Procrastination

We all know Aesop’s Fable “The Tortoise and the Hare.”

The story concerns a rabbit who taunts a slow-moving tortoise and is challenged by the tortoise to a race. The rabbit soon leaves the tortoise behind and, confident of winning, takes a nap midway through the course. When the rabbit awakes however, he finds that his challenger, crawling slowly but steadily, has arrived before him. I can remember hearing this story as a child and to quote a famous Looney Tunes character Elmer Fudd, “Silly Rabbit” is what I thought about it back then. Well I’m not a child anymore although my grandchildren would tell you I am.
