“Literature starts by being personal, but the deeper we go inside the more we become everybody’ ― Donald Hall

One of the best ways to share your insights with people is to make it a story that touches them on a personal level. I am very aware that some of what I write below maybe a great oversimplification. However, that is a trade off I chose to make so that the world of business becomes more accessible to everyone. In my humble opinion, the two things we undervalue in life are common sense and empathy. A lot of business rests on these two fundamental principles. It is that simple.

If you want another testimonial, listen to Charlie Munger. Munger, the 95 year old billionaire and Warren Buffet’s partner in business and in life has this to say: “You don’t have a lot of envy. “You don’t have a lot of resentment.“You don’t overspend your income. “You stay cheerful in spite of your troubles. “You deal with reliable people. “And you do what you’re supposed to do.“And all these simple rules work so well to make your life better. And they’re so trite.”
