It’s Saturday afternoon July 4th down by the pier. During the family barbeque a child says to his Dad “daddy why are we having hot dogs again while that guy over there is grilling bacon wrapped filet mignon, jumbo shrimp on skewers, and huge twice backed potatoes”. Daddy says “that’s Bobby Booshay and his yacht”. He banks all his gains because he is a day trader and treats his family to nice things NOW. He lives for the present son. Daddy why can’t we live like that. Son I’m saving up for the BIG SCORE. It could come tomorrow, next month, in 10 years, or maybe never. But daddy I want to live a good happy life NOW because the world, our future, our health, and life in general is uncertain. I wanna LIVE IN THE NOW daddy and enjoy nice things in life. Son I am a bag holder and I choose not to cash in on the thousands I’m ahead to live a better life now because I’m going to gamble it on a even better future for us son. But daddy that sounds risky. Trust me son I’ve been in this stock since 2001 and it’s up 25 cents since then. Ok daddy, may I have another hot dog and some fries. Sure son and wave to Bobby as his yacht pulls away from our dingy.
Get Busy Living or Get busy Dying.
Gentlemen although I don’t like any of you have a safe and happy holiday. I’m taking a break for the long weekend. We will get back in the trenches on Monday morning.
