Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

This is re posted.


Andrew

Hello, and welcome to repost it. In the next few moments we'll be breaking down the posts that we have found to be inspiring, interesting, or otherwise entertaining quotes that catch our eye and we feel are worth a deeper look. Thank you for stopping by. Today we are looking at something from an ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu. He says, nature does not hurry, yet. Everything is accomplished. I think no one more in the world needs to hear this than me. I do not enjoy the journey. I go on road trips, and getting there is the most fastest The most important thing, I'll start the gas tank I'll run in, go to the bathroom and try to start driving immediately. I need to sometimes take this advice but to slow down


Larry

for the record. I'm sort of on you. I'm with you. For the road trip theory. Like let's limit the P stops everybody which is hard to say to eight year old and the wife let's get on the I five not take the one on one because we got to get there fast. So I'm with you on that the road trip part.


Andrew

Right? Well, what about life? You take your your morning coffee, and you look at the tree that you just noticed a couple days ago outside your house? I think I could find lots of reasons that are examples of things that are time sensitive, but like if you really break it down. nothing's really that time sensitive. I think, to some extent whether you do this on purpose or not you embrace that. I'll text you and you might text me back three days later.


Larry

I don't think it's had that has nothing to do with hurry. It's like it's just there's so much going on. I can't I'm like overwhelmed by everything in life. Yeah, I read this quote, I just thought like, you know, unless you're like a, I hate to say this like a crazy bible thumper, you think the earth is not as old as it is, but most people think the earth is really old. And it took a long, long time to get where we are right now. I just read this, I just think is a great fact about Earth. Basically, the reason the earth ever became habitable by human beings is because we got hit by meteors. Like there was planets all throughout the galaxy, right. And after gazillions of years, meteors just planked off or the earth enough that started this chain reaction where life could form. Yeah. And then we're here recording on zoom talking to each other like Star Trek. Like it took a long, long time. And you know, the famous Louie ck Stanhope that he didn't like Conan, where he kind of got started famous. He's like, like, I love when I'm sitting on a plane, and the pilot comes on to be like, we're gonna be delayed by a couple of hours. He's like, you literally just went 500 miles in an aircraft across the United States, and you're pissed, you're gonna be an hour late. It's like, we're Earth move slow technology thinks it moves fast. But in actuality, the earth really does move very slow. Well,


Andrew

yeah, in the scheme of existence, time is very slow. But I think recently, with the advent of email, and smartphones and stuff, like we think that things need to go a lot faster. I worked in construction for a while. And I remember, like, we got to the point where everything's email and digital now. It's like, Oh, we need to have drawings on our tablets, our superintendent can see changes in real time on what happens. I mean, right. When I started working, people are still using fax machines. And just asking a question about what color paint should be might take a week, and now it's a day and people have these new expectations and whether you want to buy into them or not, like within the day, like, things are gonna be fine.


Larry

No, for sure. And that and I think that's part of the reassurance that things take a long time because the earth and then the system that we're involved in, doesn't change over the course of night. Like good news, take a deep breath, you're gonna wake up tomorrow morning, and in theory, the sun's gonna rise in this moves gonna set and I think like part just to double down on what you said, it's like, if you ever visit the Grand Canyon, you go the Grand Canyon, like, Wow, this is amazing. This is like the most amazing thing ever seen yet cuz it took 20 bazillion years to make.


Andrew

Yeah, I guess a more specific or practical example of like this is if you're trying to start something if you're trying to start a new job or you're trying to start a new business, like a lot of times, I feel like I need to have instant success. But it's like the the saying in the entertainment industry is like, oh, that person was an overnight 10 year overnight success, like Bryan Cranston was an overnight success. But like he worked forever and there's so many stories or starting a podcast, we might have one listener. A day and then like slowly grows are Joe Rogan, everyone's like, he has 100 million dollar contract. But he's been doing podcasting for 11 years, five days a week like, it takes time.


Larry

You know, just to double down on that I heard David Diggs the great guy from he was the actor who played Thomas Jefferson and Hamilton. Hmm. And he was saying, like, if you go back in your passage change one thing, he would just say, like, I just wouldn't be so hard on myself on the timeline of my career, like, you know, like, just like you said, about being an actor. You're like, I want to be in the thing right now, do this thing. And if you could just, I know that's hard to do, right? Because you're an actor, you want to get FaceTime and be in things. Yeah, please. Like, I just wish I was less hard on myself on having a firm plan of how the career had a look.


Andrew

Yeah. Or if you start any kind of job, like you started as a line cook, I wish I was a sous chef, or I want to, like whatever, putting in a time is gonna make you better. I mean,


Larry

for sure. And I like this quote in that, you know, it's a reminder that nature's doing his thing. It takes a long time for water to float down the entire Colorado River takes 24 hours for the sun to fully set fully closed. And that doesn't change but you you can you can get a que anon supporter to tell you that. Hey, man, sometimes there's 36 hour cycles. Nope. It's always gonna be 24, bro.


Andrew

36 hours.


Larry

I just made that up. But you know, there's crazy people out there that think did his makeup things but know that there's a really, there's scientific fact for how the earth and the system works. And typically speaking, you can wake up in the morning and rely on those things.


Andrew

Yeah. So just everybody take a deep breath. When you take a road trip, go fast. It's fun.


Larry

I just want to say this last thing and I haven't said it yet. It's in the Bible. Somewhere in I don't I'm not a Bible. It's in the Bible somewhere like in Corinthians blah, blah, blah. It's like, don't worry about the lilies of the field. Don't worry about the day. Something about like how the plants and flowers and foxes Don't worry about anything. They just go live their life. Yeah.


Andrew

And I guess I have one more thing to add. If you're a Detroit Lions fan, eventually win the Super Bowl.


Larry

No, actually, no, actually no. negatory


Andrew
