Keep in mind that he's in the fishing industry, so he might have some sturdy nets to catch him!
Everything requires time. It is the only truly universal condition. All work takes place in time and uses up time. Yet most people take for granted this unique, irreplaceable, and necessary resource. Nothing else, perhaps, distinguishes effective executives as much as their tender loving care of time."
Peter F. Drucker
When you're in your nineties and looking back, it's not going to be how much money you made or how many awards you've won. It's really what did you stand for. Did you make a positive difference for people?

Alex, more on children from Kahlil Gibran

Growth

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you.
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
Which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you,
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might that His arrows might go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.
Edison was smart fella coco. I use to had dis on meh office wall in guyana.

"Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration"
Thomas A. Edison

...then a lot of stink sweaty people start coming in the office, and I tek it down.
When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds. Your mind trancends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. - The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

To be an artist includes much; one must possess many gifts - absolute gifts - which have not been acquired by one's own effort. And, moreover, to succeed, the artist much possess the courageous soul.
