This does NOT come with the Slow & Steady Puzzle. That item is purchased separately.
The turtle is a powerful symbol, not only for its longevity but also for its steadfast and unhurried nature. It understands that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step - or in its case, a single paddle. It's an embodiment of the idea that success doesn't always come rushing in; it's often a slow and steady trek that, over time, brings about change, growth, and eventually, success.

When we thought about what art style would be best to portray this dedication to slow and steady growth, we kept coming back to the idea of woodburning. It's not an easy craft, I'll tell you that. It's about carefully burning the wood, stroke by stroke, with a heated tool that leaves a permanent mark. The process is slow, and it requires patience and precision. There's no rushing it - you have to respect the medium, the tool, and the process.

And isn't that just like life?

We live in a world of instant gratification, where we expect results right away. But the things that truly matter take time. They require us to go slow, to be patient, and to keep going, even when the going gets tough. They require us to keep our eye on the horizon, knowing that our destination is out there, waiting for us.

The 'Slow and Steady' design is a testament to the turtle's journey and the wood-burner's craft. It's a reminder that success is not a sprint, but a marathon. That the key is not speed, but perseverance.

My hope for you with this ZOX is that it's a reminder that success is not always about getting there fast. It's about moving in the right direction, taking one step at a time. It's about embracing the journey and understanding that every effort, every stride, contributes to the final result.

So let's be more like the turtle, my friend. Let's be slow, steady, and unwavering in our path. After all, in the end, it's the ones who keep going that reach the finish line.

Big Hugs!
