Story of the Turtles.

Story of the Turtles

A turtle family decided to go on a
picnic. The turtles, being naturally slow about things, took
seven years to prepare for their outing. Finally the turtle
family left home looking for a suitable place. During the
second year of their journey they found a place ideal for
them at last!

For about six months they cleaned
the area, unpacked the picnic basket, and completed the
arrangements. Then they discovered they had forgotten the
salt. A picnic without salt would be a disaster, they all
agreed. After a lengthy discussion, the youngest turtle was
chosen to retrieve the salt from home. Although he was the
fastest of the slow moving turtles, the little turtle
whined, cried, and wobbled in his shell. He agreed to go on
one condition: that no one would eat until he returned. The
family consented and the little turtle

Three years passed and the little
turtle had not returned. Five years...six years... then on
the seventh year of his absence, the oldest turtle could no
longer contain his hunger. He announced that he was going to
eat and begun to unwrap a sandwich. At that point the little
turtle suddenly popped out from behind a tree shouting,
'See! I knew you wouldn't wait. Now I am not going
to go get the salt.'

Some of us waste time waiting for people to live up to our expectations. We are so concerned
about what others are doing that we do nothing
