Simple Advice for Living

Nicole Buffett, granddaughter of the legendary investor Warren Buffett, was interviewed shortly after her grandfather announced he would be leaving the majority of his investments to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It was estimated that Mr. Buffet would be donation about 30 billion dollars to the foundation. Nicole was asked some of the obvious questions ( wouldn’t you have liked to have received some of that money?) but the most interesting question asked her about family advice she had received from her grandmother, Mrs. Buffett. Mrs. Buffet suggested five points to effective living.

1. Show up.
2. Tell the truth.
3. Pay attention.
4. Do your best..
5. Don’t get too attached to the outcome
