Going Round In Circles..

An American investment banker was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several yellow fin tuna.
The banker complimented the fisherman and asked how long it took to catch them. The fisherman replied, “Only a little while.”

The banker asked, “Why don’t you fish longer and catch more fish?”
The fisherman replied, “With this I have enough to support my family.”

The banker asked, “What do you do with the rest of your time?”
The fisherman replied, ”I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village every evening, sip wine and play guitar with my amigos.”

The banker suggested to the fisherman to spend more time fishing, earn more and buy a bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger boat, buy several boats. “Eventually you’ll have a fleet of boats. Instead of selling your catch to the middle man, you could sell directly to the processor, eventually open your own cannery. You would control the processing and the distribution. You would then have to leave this small coastal village and move to the city where you will run your expanding business.”

“Then after that?” asked the fisherman. The banker laughed, “When the time comes, you could sell your company stock and become very rich.”
“After that?” The banker replied, “Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal village, sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll the village in the evening, sip wine and play the guitar with your amigos.”

Sometimes it’s best to be contented. There are two things to aim at in life : first, to get what you want; and after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. ~Logan Pearsal Smith
