Listen to the Story


In a small village near by the sea, there lived a fisherman named Binh. Binh was known for his laziness and procrastination. He would often delay his work and wait for the last moment to catch fish. One day, Binh decided to take a nap after having a heavy lunch. He thought he had plenty of time to catch fish later in the day. However, when he woke up, he realized that it was already late afternoon, and the tide had started to rise. In a panic, Binh rushed to the shore, but it was too late. The tide had already come in, and the water was too deep for him to venture out. Binh regretted wasting his time and not utilizing it wisely. From that day on, Binh learned the importance of time and never procrastinated again. He woke up early, worked hard, and planned his day to make the most of it. Binh realized that time and tide wait for none and that the only way to achieve success was to value and utilize time wisely.
