You’d think Warren Buffett, being one of the richest men in the world, would be one of the busiest men in the world. You know, the cult of the 100-hour week, the cult of the workaholic founder etc.
But that simply isn’t true. In this interview, it turns out he likes to set vast chunks of time aside for just reading and thinking. As Buffet says, as a rich man, he can pretty much buy anything he wants, except for another second of time. And so he protects his time accordingly.
“Busy is the new stupid.”
