It’s the most obvious solution to our current problems in business and society.
One of Buffett’s most famous nuggets of pure unadulterated wisdom is key to personal success. Not only that, but it’s also especially applicable in light of the tragedy surrounding the senseless killing of George Floyd.
As the nation grapples with daily protests, riots, and looting, it’s fitting to me that the biggest missing element to squelch the flames of racism comes down to one four-letter word espoused by Buffett in this famous quote:
Basically, when you get to my age, you’ll really measure your success in life by how many of the people you want to have love you actually do love you. That’s the ultimate test of how you have lived your life. The more you give love away, the more you get.
The ultimate test.
Love is the most powerful force in the universe and, in good practice in relation to other human beings, should give you a personal or business advantage over a lifetime, as it has for Buffett.
