Warren Buffet, known as the “Oracle of Omaha” is one of the richest men in the world. He is also a person who reads many hours every day. He has been called a Sage who imparts wisdom that transcends industries, generations and cultures.

Buffet says that “In the world of business, the people who are the most successful are those who are doing what they love”. Much more important, Buffet says that the “Greatest measure of a person’s success at the end of their life comes down to one word: Love”.

“If you get to my age in life and nobody thinks well of you, I don’t care how big your bank account is, your life is a disaster”, says Warren Buffet.

Alice Schroeder in her book on Buffet, “Snowball: Warren Buffet and the Business of Life” quotes Buffet as saying that love is the “Ultimate test of how you have lived your life. The trouble is that you can’t buy it. You can buy sex. You can buy testimonial dinners. But the only way you get love is to be lovable”.

In the light of the above, Marcel Schwantes in his article on Buffet asks “What should you do to become so beloved by others that, when you ‘re ready to hang it up, they’ll lavish you with praise, accolades, admiration, and tell the world, ‘He loved well’ “?

Schwantes goes on to suggest that if you are courageous there are four ways to put this kind of practical love into motion. They are:

  1. “Think and act selflessly without expecting anything in return”
  2. “Choose a culture of love”
  3. “Work the ‘Platinum Rule’ “
  4. “Do what you love”

Attached is Schwantes’ article. I trust you will benefit and enjoy reading it.
