Wow, What Do You Know 哇，想不到吧

Slowly Will Be Faster
A young man was riding on a mule with heavily loaded chestnuts which were packed carelessly. He traveled in his mule a long way to collect those chestnuts. He wasn't sure about how long it would take to reach home. He saw an old man on his way and asked him how long he thought it would take.
The old man looked at the heavy load and said, "if you ride slowly, you can reach your place in 3 hours. If you ride faster, you will reach home no sooner than early night!"
The young man was surprised to hear that. It appeared very strange. However, he was in a hurry to reach home. He rushed his mule to run faster.
As he rushed his mule, the chestnuts started to fell off from the bag. He stopped the mule and picked the chestnuts. Again, he hurried in his mule and again few chestnuts fell off. He picked again and lost some more. He tried to make the lost time but in vain. Many times he repeated the same and it took almost midnight to reach his place.
He then realized the real meaning of those words told by the old man!
