SOAPBOX® mini-motivation: oh, Warren, how I love thee

“The snowball just happens if you’re the right kind of snow… in terms of understanding the world and what kind of friends you accumulate.  You get to select over time, and you’ve got to be the kind of person that the snow wants to attach itself to.  You’ve got to be your own wet snow, in effect.  You’d better be picking up snow as you go along, because you’re not going to be getting back up to the top of the hill again.  That’s the way life works.” *     ~ Warren Buffett,  business magnate, investor & philanthropist

The man who stands as an eerily omnipresent, often omnipotent shadow over Wall Street is still just a man.  Yet the magnificent story of his journey is one you should make an honest effort to learn.  I could not have guessed that cracking his biography would tie me to his coattails as a fascinated fan and trusting follower of his irrefutably timeless and (thankfully) timely wisdom.  In Buffett I’ve found  a brilliant mentor, straight-shooting boss, strict father, unforgettable muse and magical grandpa… overflowing with unwavering optimism yet realistic perspective and dynamic purpose.  Folks, I can only hope that you find a few “Buffetts” to confetti your life with such unique power and light .  And, in turn, you become the kind of snow others cling to with devotion.     ~ KD
