A horse was very proud of his speed. Once he saw a snail and mocked him. The horse said, “Hey there, snail. Let’s have a race.” The snail didn’t reply and the horse laughed at him.
The snail got angry and accepted the challenge, saying the race will happen tomorrow.
He went home and made a plan with all his snail friends to outrace the horse. Since they all looked alike, the next day they hid in different places from starting to the finish line.
After the race started, the horse covered a small distance. He looked down to find the snail ahead of him.
He increased his speed, but every time he looked down, the snail was already ahead of him. The horse couldn’t match the snail’s speed and gave up.
He said, “I lose, I can’t win the race. You are faster.” The snail laughed hard.
Moral – Smart work is much faster.
