What does this metaphor, “The slowest of the Fastest” mean?
It means very simply this:
We have a choice every moment of every day.
To be positive, or, to not be positive.
Here’s one of life’s invisible truths: Everybody is fighting a hard battle. Everyone. Even the people who appear, on the surface, to have a great (easy) life.
We all have a choice on how we live our lives.
There are two choices:
To be the fastest of the slowest.
To be the slowest of the fastest.
On our deathbed, if we are lucky (blessed) to have this moment, we can look back on our lives and say with a peaceful joy, “I gave it my best effort and have no regrets about what I could have, should have or would have done“.

Carpe diem, because if you don’t, who will. If not today, when? jeff 🙂
