"Gone Fishing"

Jun 04, 2024

It’s a phrase that evokes images of serene waters, the gentle bob of a fishing line, and the peaceful escape from the daily grind. It's an idiom for taking time off to relax.

On gruelling workdays, our minds can’t help but drift toward fantasies of a more fulfilling life. A life where our passions take centre stage.

Swap the laptop and ergo chair for a rod and runabout.

Extend your leisure indefinitely by turning passions into a permanent lifestyle.

Pursue a job that feels less like work and more like play.

But there's a hidden danger along this path.

What was once a source of relaxation can quickly lose its charm when it becomes our means of earning a living. Joy quickly turns into stress under the weight of obligation.

The value of leisure lies in its ability to provide a counterbalance against the demands and pressures of work.

When you find yourself thinking about going fishing, permanently, think of the fishers.

To them, it’s just work.
