I came across this little story awhile back by Anthony DeMello. It seems a little counter-cultural but certainly worthy of our personal self-reflection:
The rich industrialist from the North was horrified to find the southern fisherman lying beside his boat smoking a pipe.
“Why aren’t you out fishing?” said 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 boats . . . maybe even a fleet of boats. Then you would be a rich man like me.”
“What would I do then?” asked the fisherman.
“Then you could enjoy life.”
“What do you think I am doing right now?”
This building was constructed in 2009 for Concrete Accessories near Four Corners, Montana. The basic steel structure is from Garco Buildings of Spokana WA
My favorite toy – just like playing in the sandbox again!
The U45 is an incredible machine for the kind of work we do. We can fit in tight spaces and, with the zero tail swing feature, not worry about knocking everything over. I use it for our own building construction and hire out for other digging jobs.
We just completed this 50′ x 100′ storage building . Simple and fun to build.
