Warren Buffett On Nowadays People Who Are Just Focusing Only on Resume
Warren Buffett: Focusing just to add strength up your resume is like ‘saving up sex for your old age’
Warren Buffett is known as the Sage Investor. The world number one richest man who stand top in the club of billionaires. He is the most intelligent and smartest person you may have ever known. The strategies he makes to invest in exceptional. Today Warren Buffet is going teach us the most important life lesson that could change your perception. So. let’s learn about what he says.
The most important aspect according to Warren Buffett is to love your job. Whatever job you do, you should love it. So when it comes to career advice, Warren Buffet will possibly advise you to select the job that you love the most.
Warren Buffet is a person who doesn’t believe in resumes. In the lecture at University of Florida’s business school in 1998, buffet told Students to stop thinking about resumes and just think about what they want to do. And then said to do that.
Here’s Warren Buffett said via Buffet FAQ:
I get to work in a job that I love, but I have always worked at a job that I loved. I loved it just as much when I thought it was a big deal to make $1,000.
I urge you to work in jobs that you love. I think you are out of your mind if you keep taking jobs that you don’t like. Because you think it will look good on your resume.
I was with a fellow at Harvard the other day who was taking me over to talk. He was 28 and he was telling me all that he had done in life, which was terrific. And then I said, “What will you do next?” Well, he said, “Maybe after I get my MBA I will go to work for a consulting firm. because it will look good on my resume,” I said, “Look, you are 28 and you have been doing all these things. You have a resume 10 times than anybody I have ever seen. Isn’t that a little like saving up sex for your old age?”
So basically, Warren Buffet is trying to say. The thing which you love the most is like playground feeling for you. When you start working on the thing which you love the most, you will do that work with more enthusiasm. And this one of the best “Mantra Of Success”.
The above paragraph also tells us that, you shouldn’t skip out on doing something today because you think you will be able to do it better in the future. Work a job or work to find a job which you love, and don’t pursue something because it will – or, it might look good in a resume.
Our resume is an abstract representation of your career. It can be an accomplishment that may or may no matter. It only depends on how you leverage it to maximum benefits. But working on your loved job is something very great idea.
Warren Buffett continued:
There comes a time when you thought to start doing what you want. Take a job that you love. You will jump out of bed in the morning. When I first got out of Columbia Business School, I wanted to go to work for Graham immediately for nothing. He thought I was over-priced. But I kept pestering him. I sold securities for three years and I kept writing to him and finally, I went to work for him for a couple of years. It was a great experience. But I always worked in a job that I loved doing. You really should take a job that if you were independently wealthy that would be the job you would take. You will learn something, you will be excited about, and you will jump out of bed. You can’t miss. You may try something else later on, but you will get way more out of it and I don’t care what the starting salary is.
My mentor once said that “Work or a Job you are doing, it should be like as if your playing with your job or work”. In my opinion, this statement makes sense. Think about a sport which you love to play, it can be football, baseball, cricket etc. You can also think about hobbies like cooking, traveling and so on. I just want whatever favorite thing you do, you do it with your whole heart and soul. Because you feel happy to do that thing. Now, think you are doing work you love to do. Well, you are going to impress your boss. Thinking about business or other curriculum things you do. You are going to be successful. Try it, then see whether it is making you happy and successful.
This topic is pretty sensible. It is all up to you either be happy or don’t and never do something now just to the promise of some ambiguous payoff later.
