"But what do you do with the rest of your time all day?" asked another American.
Another American tourist interrupted, "Well, I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you. You should start fishing longer each day. You can then sell the extra fish you catch and with the money you make, you can buy a bigger boat."
"And with a bigger boat, you can make even more money and you can buy a larger third boat, and fourth boat and so on until you have an entire fleet of new trawlers."
"How long would that take?" asked the Greek Fisherman.
"And after that, then what?" asked the Greek Fisherman.
"Millions? Really?" replied the fisherman. "Yes and after that, then what?" asked the Greek fisherman.
"After that you will be able to sell off all your boats, properties and investments and retire. You can move to a tiny village near the coast or perhaps to one of the beautiful islands where you can sleep late, play with your grandchildren, catch a few fish, take a siesta in the afternoon with your wives and spend days with your friends and your evenings drinking Ouzo and singing and dancing," said the American.
