Omaha oraclet indicated that there is a message that believes that "it is very important to transfer it to younger people".
Billionaire Warren Buffett is characterized not only by being one of the biggest investors all the time but also by constantly advising new generations.
This time, in the book by author Gillian Zoe Segal, called "How to get there: a book of mentors", which brings together the experience of 30 leaders, Omaha said Oraha-according to CNBC that there is a message that considers: "Very important to transfer it to the youngest people ": take care of your mind and your body.
It sounds simple. But the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway goes one step further by offering an analogy: "Let's say I offer to buy the car for your dreams, you can choose which car you want and then, when leaving class this afternoon, it will wait for you at home. "
Just like most things in life, Buffett says there's only one problem: "It's the only car you'll ever get … throughout your life."
"Now you know how to treat that car?" Question.
"You will carefully read the manual four times before you run it:" You will keep it in the garage, you will protect it all the time, you will change oil twice as many times as necessary, "Buffett says." If it is a little rusty, you will fix it immediately so that it does not spread, because you know it must be as long as you live. "
By analogy, Buffett sentences: the position where you are with your car is exactly the position you are in relation to your mind and body.
In other words, how you treat your car should not be different from how you treat your body.
"You only have one mind and one body for the rest of your life," Buffett says. "If you don't take care of them when you're young, it's like leaving the car in a hail storm and letting it eat it. If you don't take care of your mind and body now, when you're 40 or 50, you will be like a car that can't go anywhere. "
Considering that the investor has published his admiration for Coca Cola and burgers, it is doubtful that if Buffett practices what he is talking about
For the most part, the answer is yes.
When a nutritionist in New Jersey wrote Buffett a letter to encourage him to eat more healthy food, he replied that his diet was not as bad as most would think.
"I have a wonderful doctor who drives me in that direction every time I see him." Overall, I have had a remarkable good health, largely because of the genes, but I also think so because I really enjoy life. every day, "he said in his reply.
And in 2007, when he was 70 years old, he told CNBC that his doctor had told him two years ago: "You either eat better or you exercise."
Buffett chose the latter, as he called "the smallest of two evil ones."
