A business man is on holiday. After a tasty lunch, he went strolling down a white sandy beach. He came across a fisherman resting under a shady tree and start chatting with him.

The fisherman told him that he made a profit this morning with a fruitful catch of fishes.

Business man asked him why he did not continue to catch more fishes this afternoon.

The fisherman reply him that he has enough catch for the day.

Business-man was a bit angry, he told the fisherman he is wasting his time. He should not waste time and should have spend his time catch more fishes. Earn more money, use the money to employ people and boats and earn even more.

The fisherman asked him, so what happen after he make so much money.

The businessman told him, with lots of money, he can retire, lay under sun and enjoy life.

The fisherman, asked the businessman again, “What do you think I am doing now?”

Morale of the story, you need to know your life objective. There are many ways to achieve it. Once you clearly know your objective, the path will be clear.
