Every day thousands of people come and go through the main entrance of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. The weight of their troubles literally makes most of them look down as they enter, and no one can fault them for not stepping up on the bench and peering over the wall to see if there is anything worth seeing on the other side. Turns out there is.
Everyone remembers the story of the tortoise and the hare. The moral of the original story is that slow and steady wins the race. But not if you never get off the stupid log to begin with.
If you just sit there like a dork taking selfies in the marsh, the hare wins the race and gets the princess and the Corvette and you end up working night security at the mall. The end.
