The Tortoise and the Hare
The Hare is cool for some people. He’s fast and sexy and always getting attention.
The Tortoise is slow and steady. Rock-solid, but perceived as boring.
I’d like to think there’s nothing stopping the Tortoise merging with the Hare in a freaky glorious mashup.
For many years I’ve not pushed my Identity, partly because I wasn’t aware of _how_ to do it, but mostly because I wasn’t up to snuff. Now I am. I’ve never had a Rockstar life, never run off the rails. The Business projects (no startups in the web sense) I’ve invested time and effort into are not making me rich and wealthy right now. But I push on, dreaming of the Hare and walking like the Tortoise.
