now is the time

Once a fisherman was sitting near seashore, under the
shadow of a tree smoking his beedi. Suddenly a rich
businessman  passing by approached him and enquired as to
why he was sitting under a tree smoking and not working. To
this the poor fisherman replied that he had caught enough
fishes for the day.
Hearing this the rich man got angry and said: Why don’t you
catch more fishes instead of sitting in shadow wasting your
time?
Fisherman asked: What would I do by catching more fishes?
Businessman: You could catch more fishes, sell them and earn
more money, and buy a bigger boat.
Fisherman: What would I do then?
Businessman: You could go fishing in deep waters and catch
even more fishes and earn even more money.
Fisherman: What would I do then?
Businessman: You could buy many boats and employ many
people to work for you and earn even more money.

Fisherman: What would I do then?
Businessman: You could become a rich businessman like me.
Fisherman: What would I do then?
Businessman: You could then enjoy your life peacefully.
Fisherman: What do you think I’m doing right now?
MORAL – You don’t need to wait for tomorrow to be happy
and enjoy your life. You don’t even need to be more rich,
more powerful to enjoy life. LIFE is at this moment, enjoy it
fully.
As some great men have said “My riches consist not in extent
of my possessions but in the fewness of my wants”.
