Advice from the Oracle of Omaha

Listen to advice and accept instruction,
and in the end you will be wise.
              —Proverbs 19:20

Warren Buffett’s down-to-earth wisdom is legendary. Here are his Four Choices in Life That Separate the Doers from the Dreamers.

1. Pick your friends wisely.

“You will move in the direction of the people that you associate with.”

2. Go to bed a little smarter each day.

“Read widely.”

3. Improve your communication skills.

“Become worth 50 percent more than you are now by honing your communication skills—both written and verbal.”

4. Say no.

“The greatest commodity of all is time. The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything. It means saying no over and over again to the unimportant things flying in our direction every day, and remaining focused on saying yes to the few things that truly matter.”

Hearing good advice is one thing.
Following it requires self-discipline.
