The rich industrialist from the North was horrified to find the southern fisherman lying lazily beside his boat, smoking a pipe.

“Why aren’t you out fishing?” asked the industrialist.

“Because I have caught enough fish for the day,” said the fisherman.

“Why don’t you catch some more?”

“What would I do with them?”

“You could earn more money,” was the industrialist’s reply. “With that you could have a motor fixed to your boat and go into deeper waters and catch more fish. Then you would make enough to buy nylon nets. These would bring you more fish and more money. Soon you would have enough money to own two boatsmaybe even a fleet of boats.

“Then you could really enjoy life.”

From Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work

By Anthony DeMello

北方实业家很有钱,看到南方渔民懒洋洋地躺在船边,抽着烟斗,他很是震惊。

“你为什么不出去捕鱼呢?”实业家问道。

“因为今天我已经捕到了足够的鱼。”渔夫回答说。

“你为什么不多捕点呢?”

“你可以多赚一些钱,”实业家说,“有了更多的钱,你就可以在你的船上安一个发动机,到更深的水域捕更多的鱼。然后你就可以赚到足够的钱来买尼龙网。这样你会捕到更多的鱼、赚更多的钱。很快你就会有足够的钱拥有两条船……甚至有可能是一大堆船。到时你就像我一样有钱了。”

“到那时我会做什么呢?”渔夫问。

“到那时你就可以真正享受生活了。”

“那你认为我此刻在做什么呢?”
