While on vacation in Mexico, an American businessman came across a local fisherman with a small boat full of fish. The businessman asked how long it took him to catch all those fish, to which the fisherman replied only a short time.
“Why not stay out and catch more?” the American asked.
“Because this is all my family needs,” said the fisherman.
“Then what do you do with the rest of your time?” questioned the American.
“I sleep late, fish a little, play with my kids, take a siesta, stroll into the village, play guitar, and sip wine with my friends. I have a full and happy life.”
“I have an MBA,” said the American. “You should spend more time fishing and buy a bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger boat, you could buy a fleet of boats. Instead of selling to a middleman, you could sell right to the processor and eventually open your own cannery. Then you could move to Mexico City and then New York, where you'd run your expanding enterprise.”
“How long will all this take?” the fisherman wondered.
“Twenty to thirty years of hard work.” was the reply. “But then comes the best part! You announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become rich. You'd make millions.”
“And then what?” asked the simple-minded fisherman.
“Then you would retire to a small fishing village in Mexico, sleep late, play with your kids, play guitar, and sip wine with your friends,” said the businessman.
The fisherman, a bit confused, asked, “Isn't that what I'm doing right now?”
