Let’s go back to this good book I recommend to everyone : “the Snowball” by Alice Shroeder (Bantam Books). The subtitle “The business of Life” tells in few words many many things. It has to do with the concept that life and business are very co-related but deeper than that It’s probably about going where “the adventure is” and have no fear. And manage well your life while doing the things you love. So if you can manage well your life, you will manage eventually well your business. And life and business will be together one enriching the other, in a positive and wonderful vicious-circle of reciprocal accomplishment.
“Don’t sleepwalk through like” it’s the Warren’s advice that best describes how a life should be lived, no matter the different styles or approach to your talents, your attitude, your business.
It doesn’t matter if you want to be an artist, a painter, a musician, an architect. You can’t just sit around and wait, unless you’re thinking. But even after a long thinking and waiting there’ll be the time in which you have to swing. And if you have thought well, studied intensely; if you know what you’re doing : you’ll swing good and big.
“You can become to enormous degree the person you wanna be”. You’ll probably not be just like Buffett but you’ll be yourself and a better person. And that is not a small achievement at all.
