Charlie Munger’s one hour to himself

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Charlie Munger, able partner of financier Warren Buffett, got frustrated early in his career because, as Buffett describes it, “he thought he was smarter than everyone else he was working for. So he decided he was going to do something smart for his most important client—himself. He was going to sell himself what he deemed the best hour of the day to work—six to seven in the morning—and think about nothing else besides matters for this client—himself—during that time. And through those surely intense early-morning sessions with himself, he got himself into real estate, built some apartments, and expanded his moneymaking.”

Not long after that, Munger met Buffett, one of the few people who shared his thirst for knowledge and his low-key style. The two went on to found Berkshire Hathaway.

“We don’t read other people’s opinions,” Buffett adds. “We want to think. We want to get the facts, and then think.”

They didn’t found Berkshire Hathaway. They bought the textile company and eventually built it into what it is today.0
