Be Like Warren Buffet

Barcode Warren Buffet

This Harvard Business Review blog post isn’t brand new, but I’m pretty sure it’s evergreen. One thing we all forget at one point or another is this:

Communication is about sharing information.

It’s not about obscuring your meaning, trying to spin a bad situation, or fancy wordplay for it’s own sake. So don’t do these things. If you have something to share, tell people clearly. Make it interesting–fun, even, if that’s appropriate–but make it easy to understand.

So maybe we can’t all be financial wizards. That’s okay. After all, you’ll notice that the title of this post isn’t “Be Warren Buffet.”
