The 87-year-old chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway once gave us a breakthrough principle of taking charge of one’s life. Let’s revisit it.
Billionaire Warren Buffett, the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, is 87 years old and still capturing the world’s attention as the second richest person on the planet (as of this writing).
So, how has he done it? Actually, it’s not so much about what he has done as it is what he hasn’t done. With all the demands on him every day, Buffett learned a long time ago that the greatest commodity of all is time. He simply mastered the art and practice of setting boundaries for himself.
That’s why this Buffett quote remains a powerful life lesson. The mega-mogul said:
The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.
