This is my friend, Indianero. He is wanted by a lot of people, women mostly, for standing them up. So I asked him why he couldn’t keep up with his appointments or dates. And he told me bluntly, but rather warily, that the reason for his lateness is because he couldn’t grasp the concept of time! To him, time seems to fly by so swiftly that he just couldn’t keep up with it! He claims, though, that on most occasions, he can almost see time literally passing by so fast before his very eyes– before he even gets the chance to act on it timely! But to his defense, he argued that he was always there on each and every meeting– only, he was way too late. So as a friend, I told him what I always tell every “late bloomer” I happen to meet: “Better late than never!” And as a parting reminder to him, I suggested that he ought to think like a warrior every time he feels pressed for time; that is, to be swift like the wind.
I guess he heeded my advice. He now rides a much faster horse.
