There was a businessman on vacation in Mexico. He watched a fisherman wake up from a nap under a tree. The man stretched, went into the water, and returned with a fish. He gutted it, cleaned it, cooked it, ate half, and gave the rest to a tourist. He went back under the tree, and back to sleep.
“Sir, what are you doing?”
“You just caught a day’s worth of food in five minutes. You could be out there fishing all day long and sell the fish that you don’t eat.”
“Then you could buy a boat, and catch even more fish.”
“Well then you could have a whole fleet of boats and your own fish processing plant, a warehouse, and you could be canning and selling to restaurants and grocery stores.”
“And then what?”
“And then one day when you’re a rich man you can retire on the beach, lay around, and eat fish all day......”
