A day in the life of Warren Buffett. Warren Buffet is a man who needs no
introduction the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway is a successful man
on all fronts
at 89 years old Nebraska’s true son is considered one of
the best investors the world has ever seen a frequent guest to Forbes wealthiest people magazine he has a net worth of 88.9 billion
dollars.Thanks to his conglomerate that owns and operates over 60 companies how is it possible that one man can be able to execute all these responsibilities if you need an answer stick with us we are about to slit open the daily routine of the world’s ninth-richest man.
Success is not accidental this business magnate philanthropist and super tycoon is one hell of an organized man he is so organized that his best friend is guessing who Microsoft’s big boss Bill Gates the oracle of Omaha spends 80 percent of his time reading he is a devoted book lover and always protects this habit to the bone.
He wakes up every day at 6:45 a.m is not as early as most successful people do he has over the years reiterated that waking up at night is not his cup of tea I have no desire to work at 4 am he said maybe this is due to his age but he still his management method keeps getting better
warren works out for about an hour and doesn’t take breakfast at home the billion-dollar super investor is a lifelong customer at McDonald’s he has a regular menu here and decides which one best suits his appetite every day he drives to McDonald’s every single day for breakfast he takes five minutes to order either two sausage patties and an egg or a cheese sandwich he prefers paying in cash, therefore, he tells his wife to put enough money for breakfast in the car before he leaves a confessed junk lover warren says he eats like a six-year-old I check the actuarial table the lowest death rate is among six-year-olds this he said in an attempt to defend his undying love for strawberry milkshakes
Warren is also a dedicated client to one of the companies he partly owns coca-cola he takes five cans of the beverage every single day from McDonald’s the billionaire heads straight to the office work routine the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway arrive typically at the office at 9 30 a.m when the stock market’s open that is where his heart lives the stock markets donning one of his 20 pairs of suits made by the same designer madame lee all of which he doesn’t pay for by the way reason being well I don’t know too he walks to his desk which he has used for over 50 years once in the office much of the time he spends reading he reads five newspapers every morning starting with his favorite Omaha world-herald a company he bought back in 2011. asked about his obsession with reading he said read 500 pages like this every day that’s how knowledge works it builds up like compound interest, all of you can do it but I guarantee not many of you will do it.
Warren reads and reads he barely sends or receives an email neither does he spend time looking at his phone he says reading helps him avoid impulsive decisions in business his reading materials are separated impressively financial statements newspapers and books his system completely shuts down except for the reading instincts he switches off television doors and windows and gets in the zone some of the books he credits his success to include the wealth of nation by adam smith the intelligent investor and security analysis both by benjamin graham warren is not a big fan of boardroom meetings either give him two options when at the office first, he’d choose reading the final option would be to guess what reading
Bill gates maybe his best friend socially financially, and economically but warren has a sad story to tell about Microsoft he has only sent one email in his life which ended up in federal court warren in 1997 responded to an email from jeff rakes an executive at Microsoft, his response was published in a wall street journal article marking the end of him sending emails at work as stated above the staunch believer of long-term investment doesn’t enjoy meetings at work and if he has to attend it better be very brief and straight to agendas he tags along with his favorite snacks in the meetings candies and chocolate walnut fudge.
After a busy day of reading and analyzing the stock market
behaviors the legendary investment icon drives his old Cadillac DTS back home Mr buffer is a man who loves to play and he is an avid bridge player he enjoys playing this car game with his billionaire buddy bill gates
it is a game you can enjoy when you are in your 90s and you are seeing a different intellectual challenge every seven minutes it is the best exercise there is for the brain he said there you have it if you thought it’s just an ordinary game then you just got damned it is a mind cracker limited for critical thinkers only warren Buffett spends about 12 hours a week playing this game he loves he once sponsored a bridge competition in 2006 and named it Buffett cup.
The jewel of Omaha adores this game so much that he once cheekily quoted if I’m playing a bridge and a naked woman walks by I don’t even see her another billionaire like hobby warren subscribes to is playing ukulele in his free time away from work the business magnate likes pulling the strings of this musical instrument his relationship with the ukulele started way back on somewhat shaky grounds a woman he once had a crush on as a teen was dating a guy who owned a ukulele so warren fought it wise to learn the skills of playing and acquire his own,
unfortunately, the lady ended up snubbing Buffett to stay with his guy we all know she missed a chance of a lifetime but I guess it is true choices have consequences thanks to her the man behind many company’s success is a skilled player of this loot family instrument sometimes Buffett performs at meetings during interviews and at conventions, warren Buffett is not quite the money spender type of billionaire typical of any investor his money barely sees the light of day for luxurious tweets.
He’d rather donate to charity than buy a fleet of expensive cars and spend on magnificent mega-mansions I mean he is that guy who also enjoys his golf but not in a Porsche golf club I can be a member of every golf club that I want to be a member of but I’d rather be playing golf here with people, I like than at the fanciest golf course in the world he told q a come to think of it Buffett’s most expensive venture has to be the private jet he bought for the sake of constant business travels a dedicated lifelong fan of Nebraska football warren attends matches when he is in a position to he loves this sport so much that he invented a competition amongst his employees back in 2014,
he challenges them to guess all 16 teams that would participate in the NCAA march madness and for anyone who gets it right he promises to pay one million dollars yearly for the rest of his or her life that’s now what we call a baller move, unfortunately, no one has even come close to winning the contest in its six years existence the last day of the week that is Sunday the business magnate developed quite a thoughtful hobby he treats a dozen of kids to an ice cream party at dairy queen which is part of his attractive investment network most of these kids are his grandchildren and their friends he, however, complains that immediately after getting their orders the kids spend time sticking their heads to the phones
Warren loves his sleep after a long day of playing with figures he retires to bed daily at 10 45 pm and follows that bedtime routine religiously a decent sleep for eight hours that is how the Nebraska native legendary investor spends his time both at work and home.
Like everybody else, warren Buffett has had several setbacks in life both as a business mogul and as an ordinary man but his way of life is a blueprint to emulate for people seeking to reach greater heights from being rejected to Harvard business school to his father-in-law predicting he would fail in his business quest warren teaches us modesty and self-drive that most people in business lack his business acumen makes it valuable to all the companies he has toiled to build the biggest lesson that can be learned from this godfather of business is the patience it is no doubt that that patience
Is not the ability to wait but how you act while you’re waiting.
