You know, if you shine a laser pointer at a sponge, it stops. It won’t go through and shine out the other side.
But if you hold the sponge under a small stream of water, the water gets through.
There are a million paths that lead through the sponge. Just none of them are perfectly straight. So if you can only move in straight lines, it doesn’t matter if you’re fast and bright. You must be persistent and clever, instead.
Water is persistent and clever. Be like water.
