Warren Buffett on "time"

Maybe this is old hat - just saw it recently:

Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

EXCELLENT and thank you for that video! Warren always says the most intelligent things, especially when he said I can buy anything I want in the world, but I cannot buy time. Great clip!

This article popped up in a feed right after I watched this video^^.

It's excellent. I have time anorexia, too.

No person would give up even an inch of their estate, and the slightest dispute with a neighbor can mean hell to pay; yet we easily let others encroach on our lives — worse, we often pave the way for those who will take it over. No person hands out their money to passers-by, but to how many do each of us hand out our lives! We’re tight-fisted with property and money, yet think too little of wasting time, the one thing about which we should all be the toughest misers.

This is an awesome clip. And as more and more people I know pass away, it really hits home.

Thanks for posting. And in a fitting way it’s a short video�� There’s knowledge and there’s wisdom. Then there’s Buffett wisdom. We’re better off because he wants to share.

Sit on your ass and read! What a way!

What's important in life? That's the million $ question. For Buffett, a billion $ question. Even in retirement, we can be buffeted about with minutia, taking time for granted.
