    Worth thinking about ..............


    Subject: Food for thought...

    A boat docked in a tiny Mexican village. An American tourist
    complimented to the Mexican fisherman on the quality of his fish and asked
    how long it
    took him to catch them. "Not very long," answered the Mexican. "But then,
    why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?" asked the American. The
    Mexican explained that his small catch was sufficient to meet his needs
    and those of his family.

    The American asked, "But what do you do with the rest of your time?" "I
    sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, and take a siesta with
    my wife. In the evenings, I go into the village to see my friends, have a
    few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs...I have a full life."
    The American interrupted, "I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you!

    You should start by fishing longer every day. You can then sell the
    extra fish you catch. With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat.
    With
    the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a
    third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers. Instead
    of
    selling your fish to a middle man, you can negotiate directly with the
    processing plants and maybe even open your own plant. You can then leave
    this little village and move to Mexico City, Los Angeles, or even New
    York City! From there you can direct your huge enterprise."

    "How long would that take?" asked the Mexican. "Twenty, perhaps
    twenty-five years," replied the American.
    "And after that?" "Afterwards? That's when it gets really interesting,"
    answered the American, laughing.
    "When your business gets really big, you can start selling stocks and make
    millions!"

    "Millions? Really? And after that?" "After that you'll be able to
    retire, live in a tiny village near the coast, sleep late, play with your
    children, catch a few fish, take a siesta, and spend your evenings drinking
    and
    enjoying your friends.
