Enough is enough

A wealthy entrepreneur was disturbed to see a fisherman sitting idly by his boat.

He asked, “Why aren’t you out there fishing?”

“I’ve caught enough fish for today,” the fisherman said.

“Why don’t you catch more fish than you need?”

Reply: “What would I do with them?”

“You could earn more money and buy a larger boat and all of the things necessary to catch more fish. That would allow you to build your business into a powerhouse. You could have a fleet of boats and many people working for you. And, you would become a very rich man just like me.”

“Then what would I do?” asked the fisherman.

“Why, you could sit back and enjoy life.”

The fisherman said, “What do you think I’m doing now?”
