How BIG is your SHARK?

Holaaaa...I decided to have a shark in my tank after reading this!

psssst... not too sure on the wholesome truth of this Japanese fishing industry. But just take the analogy of it! Go get your SHARK.

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the water close to Japan has not held many fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever.  The further the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring the fish to shore. If the return trip took more time, the fish were not fresh. To solve this problem, fish companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish and they did not like the taste of the latter.

The frozen fish brought a lower price. So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin-to-fin. After a little thrashing around, they were tired, dull and lost their fresh fish taste. the fishing industry faced an impending crisis! But today, they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan. How did they manage...?

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks but with a small shark. The fish are challenged and hence constantly on the move. The challenge they faced keep them alive and fresh!

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired and dull?

Basically in our lives, sharks are new challenges to keep us active. If you are steadily conquering challenges, you are happy. Your challenges keep you energized. Don't create success and revel in it in a state of inertia. You have the resources, skills and abilities to make a difference. Put a SHARK in your tank next week, next month. Just put a SHARK in your tank.... and see how far you can really go!

Bring it on, 2015!
