Warren Buffett`s Best Investment Advice

Best Investment, Warren Buffett

“But ultimately, there’s one investment that supersedes all others: Invest in yourself. Address whatever you feel your weaknesses are, and do it now. I was terrified of public speaking when I was young. I couldn’t do it. It cost me $100 to take a Dale Carnegie course, and it changed my life. I got so confident about my new ability, I proposed to my wife during the middle of the course. It also helped me sell stocks in Omaha, despite being 21 and looking even younger. Nobody can take away what you’ve got in yourself–and everybody has potential they haven’t used yet. If you can increase your potential 10%, 20% or 30% by enhancing your talents, they can’t tax it away. Inflation can’t take it from you. You have it the rest of your life.”

-Warren Buffett


Least Messy Person

A quip from a podcast has wedged into my brain queue. The “least messy person…” is usually the owner. Woof.

Trim away the excess and then you can fly.

  • “If you want something done, ask a busy person”
  • too many self-assigned tasks left undone = scattered and unfocused feelings
  • My office = a bit too much horizontal filing = an archeological dig through past unfinished tasks
  • If you can`t explain something simply, you haven`t thought about it enough

One of my goals is to simplify and build systems. Chisel away the excess to reveal the masterpiece envisioned inside. (I`m talking to you, abs…)

“Procrastination makes easy things hard and hard things impossible.”

Be active. Be simple. Keep after it.
