Lesson From a FishermanJuly 16, 2013
Yesterday, a Jamaican fisherman I noticed during my recent trip to Ocho Rios dropped into my mind. Every morning, I watched his small boat come by with two men rowing while he leaned over close to the water. They moved at a very steady pace as he cast the net. The last morning I was there, his boat emerged and he was alone. Rowing with one hand and casting his net with the other and when he'd made his circle, he stopped right in front of my cottage, moved to the end of the boat and waited. He was expecting the same yield ... even if he had to go it alone. There is a lesson in that.
Even if you find yourself all alone, chasing what you want most out of life or in what is compelling you — keep going. Sometimes, you're the only one who can get you where you're trying to go.
