Adakah Warren Buffet Boros atau Sebaliknya?

Bill dan Melinda Gates telah menulis satu surat tahunan (annual letter) kepada Warren Buffet untuk mengucapkan terima kasih atas tauladan yang beliau tunjukkan. 

Apa yang menariknya ialah terselit sekeping gambar lama Warren Buffet yang mengeluarkan kupon McDonald’s semasa di Hong Kong:



Dalam surat tersebut, Bill Gates telah menulis:

“Remember the laugh we had when we traveled together to Hong Kong and decided to get lunch at McDonald’s? You offered to pay, dug into your pocket, and pulled out…coupons! Melinda just found this photo of me and ‘the big spender.’ It reminded us how much you value a good deal. That’s why we want to point you to this number, 122 million. Saving children’s lives is the best deal in philanthropy.”

Jadi, apakah pengajarannya disini?

Jika Warren Buffet iaitu billionaire tersohor dunia tidak malu untuk menggunakan kupon makanan, kenapa tidak kita juga mencontohi beliau.

Nak kaya bukan hanya perlu mengumpulkan harta, tapi juga menjimatkan perbelanjaan seboleh mungkin.

P/s: Tak perlu memperlekehkan orang yang beli apa-apa guna kupon diskaun atau yang suka minta harga murah. Entah-entah orang tu lebih kaya dari kita. Renung-renungkan..


BONUS! 10 KATA-KATA BIJAK DARI WARREN BUFFET:
  • Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.
  • It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently.
  • It's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.
  • We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful.
  • Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
  • Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.
  • Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1.
  • It's better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behavior is better than yours and you'll drift in that direction.
  • It's only when the tide goes out that you discover who's been swimming naked.
  • You only have to do a very few things right in your life so long as you don't do too many things wrong.
