10 paradoxes of Warrent Buffett

10 paradoks atau mungkin kita bisa bilang 10 kunci sukses seseorang. membahas 10 paradoxe tentunya sangat menarik dimana kita belajar untuk memehami cara berpikir yang kreatif dari tiap orang. dalam hal ini saya ingin menyajikan 10 paradoks dari seorang yang sangat terkenal dan kreatif menurut saya dalam dunia bisnis. dia adalah Waren Buffet

Here are 10 paradoxes that could offer an insight:

1. Mr Buffett has managed to make more money than other investors by being less ambitious. While Wall Street whizz kids set their sights on high returns, using leverage, Mr Buffett’s steady annual compounding of increases, avoiding debt, has worked better.

2. Mr Buffett uses a conservative approach to picking investments – “don’t lose money” is one of his favourite rules. But much of his cash comes from insurance companies that specialise in very high risk events – catastrophe insurance.

3. Mr Buffett is famous for his analytical study of the figures and unemotional response to the market. And yet among his greatest assets are his personality and reputation – both unquantifiable – and the trust they engender in potential business partners.

4. Extremely cautious with money, Mr Buffett is nevertheless happy to make “big bets” when he likes a company or a share. Unlike most investors, he believes that, for professionals at least, diversifying one’s investments only means including among them, second rate choices.

5. He has come a long way in his life, but still lives within a mile or two of where he was born.

6. Mr Buffett has made more money than almost everyone, but appears to have no use for it personally – except for the single indulgence of his private jet, which he called “The Indefensible”.

7. The most acquisitive man in the world is also one of the most philanthropic. Three years ago, Mr Buffett announced he was giving away the bulk of his fortune to charity, including $31bn (£19bn) to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

8. Mr Buffett says he has “no strategy” for Berkshire Hathaway, and yet he puts endless time and energy into communicating his ideas about markets and how to run businesses.

9. The man who is famous for a simple, down-to-earth approach to money-making has been chairman of investment bank Salomon Brothers, has a huge investment in another, Goldman Sachs, and trades in currency and derivatives.

10. Mr Buffett is one of the world’s best-known business people, and yet he has no use for marketing or promotion of his business, Berkshire Hathaway.

10 paradoxe tersebut saya baca dan kutip dari suatu artikel

dari 10 paradoxe tersebut kita melihat bahwa dalam 10 paradoxenya mr Waren Buffett memiliki satu ciri khas tertentu. yaitu Sederhana. itulah hal penting yg mungkin bisa kita tiru bahwa berpikir kreatif memang penting akan tetapi kita juga harus memiliki prinsip atau panduan yang kuat dalam berkreasi. sehingga pemikiran kreatif kita tidak akan asal-asalan dan menyimpang terlalu jauh dan yang terpenting tetap bermanfaat bagi orang lain
