A friend of mine sent this to me, and I thought I'd share it here. Consider it a contribution to the "Weekend Readings."

 

Best Wishes,

 

Thales

 

A fishing boat docked in a tiny Mexican fishing village. A tourist complimented the local fishermen on the quality of their fish and asked how long it took to catch them.

 

"Not very long." they answered in unison.

 

"Why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?"

 

The fishermen explained that their small catches were sufficient to meet their needs and those of their families.

 

"But what do you do with the rest of your time?"

 

"We sleep late, fish a little, play with our children, and take siestas with our wives. In the evenings, we go into the village to see our friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs. We have a full life."

 

The tourist interrupted, "I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you! You should start by fishing longer every day. You can then sell the extra fish you catch. With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat."

 

"And after that?"

 

"With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers. Instead of selling your fish to a middle man, you can then negotiate directly with the processing plants and maybe even open your own plant.

 

You can then leave this little village and move to Mexico City, Los Angeles, or even New York City! From there you can direct your huge new enterprise."

 

"How long would that take?"

 

"Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years." replied the tourist.

 

"And after that?"

 

"Afterwards? Well my friend, that's when it gets really interesting, " answered the tourist, laughing. "When your business gets really big, you can start buying and selling stocks and make millions!"

 

"Millions? Really? And after that?" asked the fishermen.

 

"After that you'll be able to retire, live in a tiny village near the coast, sleep late, play with your children, (or grandchildren by that time), catch a few fish, take a siesta with your wife and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying your friends."

 

"With all due respect sir, but that's exactly what we are doing now. So what's the point wasting twenty-five years?" asked the Mexicans.

 

And the moral of this story is: Know where you're going in life....you may already be there.

…..Later the tourist met with the wives of the local fisherman and asked about their life.

 

“Lazy husbands” they said in unison. “They barely work at all each day, they sleep all the time and go out drinking with their friends every night. Because our husbands work so little we have no savings for unexpected costs like health problems, we still live in a rough neighborhood so crime is uncomfortably high around my family, all we eat is fish for most dinners and he never takes me out to nice restaurants, the kids have no money saved for college…. need I go on.”

 

“Your husbands made life sound so good” said the tourist.

 

“Well, what we have would be great if all you wanted out of life was to work very little, sleep all the time, play guitar, go drinking with your friends, and sing songs.” said the wives. “That however, is not really what we want out of life. We want to life in a safer area, eat better food, give our kids a better education, have a large savings for unexpected problems, maybe get our hair done every once in a while. It might be nice to also help out the poor or others who are in need. There is much we want from life that we can’t have because our husbands barely work and sleep all the time.”

 

And the moral of the story is: Life has much better things to offer than sleeping and drinking and your wife probably wants those better things.

...And the moral of the story is: Life has much better things to offer than sleeping and drinking and your wife probably wants those better things.

 

Love, friendship, and sufficient leisure time to enjoy the fruits of each ... there is no "thing" better than that, my friend, and I am fortunate to have married a woman who understands that truth.

 

Moral of the story: Do not choose a wife until you have chosen your life, and pray that in each case, you have chosen wisely.

 

 

Best Wishes,

 

Thales

    • Date : 25th January 2022. Market update – January 25. A flight out of equities and into the safety of bonds was the opening theme yesterday – Could we see this repeated? US futures are under pressure once again, alongside a broad sell off across Asian equity markets. Tensions over the Ukraine, virus developments in China and the prospect of reduced central bank support all continued to weigh on sentiment overnight. The rise in Omicron cases ahead of the Lunar New Year holidays and of course the Olympic Games is adding to nervousness over slowing growth.   Australia’s inflation rate came in higher than expected, which added to growing conviction that the RBA will end its quantitative easing program at the February 1 meeting. Singapore surprised with a move to tighten policy outside of a scheduled review USD (USDIndex 95.90) saw a pullback after breaching 96.11. Treasury rates dove lower with a strongly bid 2-year sale extending the slide. The just auctioned 2-year rate dropped 7 bps to hit 0.970%. Equities – Hang Seng and CEI 200 expected to drop more than -1.8% today. The Nikkei closed with a loss of -1.7%, the ASX plunged -2.5% after the hot inflation report. Yesterday, USA100 crashed -4.9%, with the broader indexes over -3% lower before hitting bottom and paring losses. But a late buy the dip rally saw the USA100 rally 0.63%, with the USA500 and USA30 up 0.29%. USOil – back to $82.00 territory, – recovering some of yesterday’s losses, as growing tension in Eastern Europe and the Middle East fuelled concerns over possible supply disruptions. Lower US oil inventories are also providing support. Gold – held on to gains at $1841 as investors sought safety. Bitcoin steadied to $35,000 handle. FX markets – The Yen was supported as risk aversion picked up and USDJPY dropped to 113.66. EURUSD at 1.1306 & Cable below 1.3500. European Open – European stock futures are signalling a bounce back from yesterday’s sell off, with the GER40 and UK100 currently posting gains of 1.1% and 0.8% respectively. EGB yields are set to rise today, as stock markets bounce back from yesterday’s sell off. The German 10-year Bund yield is up 1.4 bp at -0.097% in early trade, the French 10-year up 1.3 bp, both underperforming versus Treasuries, which have moved higher overnight, as Asian stock markets sold off. Today – The FOMC meeting starts today, with an announcement due tomorrow, ahead of the ECB and BoE meetings in February. Geopolitical risks will remain in focus today, while the data calendar highlights are the German Ifo readings and the UK CBI manufacturing survey. Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) Cocoa (-3.22%) Huge dive to 2488 from 2684 highs seen last week, breaking all daily SMAs (20-, 50-, 200-day).
