A fisherman lounging at the wharf

A businessman comes up and asks why he isn't out there fishing.
"I already caught enough today to feed my family."

"But if you fish more, you could sell the fish and make money."

"Why would I want to do that?"

"With the money, you could buy more boats and hire other people to man them."

"Why would I want to do that?" 

"Well, then you could make even more money and retire."

"Why would I want to do that?" 

"Then you could spend your days lounging on the wharf and only fishing as much as you pleased." 

"But that's what I'm doing right now."
