A boy is trying to push a large bolder with all his weight against it, but not getting very far. A barrier blocks the road; fallen trees, barbed wire etc. Two crow are mocking. A snail is moving faster. An inchworm is moving faster. A rope pulled taught by a sunken anchor. Life is a drag. A ball and chain slowing things down.
You will get a flat tire and not have a spare. You will get stuck in the mud. You will be plagued with obstacles. You will meet resistance. The wind will be taken from your sails. You'll just have to wait. You will be late and you will wast everyone's time.
Watch out for low hanging branches. Beware of quicksand in your path. Don't struggle. Don't advance when your path is not clear. Don't run on a flat tire.
No greater crime than loss of time.
Make dust or eat dust.
