I figured i'd make a thread where you can post little stories that one can take lessons from.
I'll give an example with one my grandpa once told me.
There once was a fisherman sitting on the dock relaxing, and enjoying the weather after reaching reaching his quota for the day. Then a tourist asked him what he was doing.
"I finished early today. So i'm just relaxing and enjoying myself." The fisherman said.
The tourist looked perplexed "But theres so much time left n the day? You could go out and catch more. Work hard every day and you could afford a bigger boat! Keep working harder still and maybe you could open your own company and eventually have a business that runs its self, and then you could relax as much as you want!"
The fisherman was silent for a moment, then he said, "But why go through all that trouble that might take up the rest of my life only to relax, when i'm already relaxing right now?
