Wanna know how Warren Buffet got so rich? He’s not super smart, or super lucky, or super connected.
He’s old. And he’s been doing the same thing for a long, long time.
Namely, picking decent companies to invest in. As an investment strategy, it’s pretty simple. He just picks companies that have solid earnings, and are predicted to have solid earnings. Then he buys them, and holds them. For a long, long time.
This is what happens when you do something that works, and keep doing it, for a long, long time.
You’ll get pretty good.
What’s Ben Franklin go to do with it?
He had a method to review his day every night, in light of what his goals were.
He’d have big huge goals out in the future. Then he’d look back over his day, and see what he did that moved him closer. Then he’d look to the next day, and look for things he could do that would move him closer.
Now, let’s be honest. Most people don’t even have solid goals. Some vague wishes, yes. But solid goals that you are planning to achieve?
The secret to success is not being super lucky or super connected or super smart. It’s just choosing a big, specific, measurable goal out in the future.
And then taking small, consistent steps to get there.
Every. Single. Day.
Do this, and you’ll accomplish some miraculous things.
