The businessman then asked, “But what do you do with the rest of your time?”
The fisherman said, “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take a nap with my wife, stroll into the village each evening where I drink a beer and play the ukelele with my friends. I have a full and wonderful life.”
The businessman scoffed, “I’m a Harvard MBA, and I could help you. You should spend more time fishing, and with the proceeds, you could buy a bigger boat. With the money from the bigger boat, you could buy several boats. Eventually, you’d own a fleet of fishing boats…. You’d make millions of dollars!”
“But what then?” asked the fisherman.
The businessman said, “Then you could retire-move to a small fishing village where you could sleep late…fish a little…play with your kids…take a nap with your wife…stroll down to the village in the evenings…where you could drink a beer…and play the ukelele with your friends!”
