Advice for a Fisherman

One day a fisherman was lying on a beautiful beach, with his fishing pole
propped up in the sand and his solitary line cast out into the sparkling blue
surf. He was enjoying the warmth of the afternoon sun and the prospect of
catching a fish.

About that time, a businessman came walking down the beach, trying to relieve
some of the stress of his workday. He noticed the fisherman sitting on the beach
and decided to find out why this fisherman was fishing instead of working harder
to make a living for himself and his family.

You aren't going to catch many fish that way, said the businessman to the
fisherman, you should be working rather than lying on the beach!

The fisherman looked up at the businessman, smiled and replied, And what will
my reward be?

Well, you can get bigger nets and catch more fish! was the businessman's
answer.

And then what will my reward be? asked the fisherman, still
smiling.

The businessman replied, You will make money and you'll be able to
buy a boat, which will then result in larger catches of fish!

And then what will my reward be? asked the fisherman again.

The businessman was beginning to get a little irritated with the fisherman's
questions. You can buy a bigger boat, and hire some people to work for you! he
said.

And then what will my reward be? repeated the fisherman.

The businessman was getting angry. Don't you understand? You can build up a
fleet of fishing boats, sail all over the world, and let all your employees
catch fish for you!

Once again the fisherman asked, And then what will my reward be?

The businessman was red with rage and shouted at the fisherman, Don't you
understand that you can become so rich that you will never have to work for your
living again! You can spend all the rest of your days sitting on this beach,
looking at the sunset. You won't have a care in the world!

The fisherman, still smiling, looked up and said, And what do you think I'm
doing right now?
