Normally, I find the articles posted within LinkedIn to be extremely annoying and amateur. The tone of most of the articles is kind of a know-it-all preening tone that shuts my brain down pretty instantly.
I'm really, really glad though that I clicked on this one. I'm not a "fan" of Buffet, but I absolutely loved one of these nuggets of advice and good on the author for prying it out of him. Really nice and I've certainly given a similar message to friends and colleagues over the years.
I have put it differently, warning and begging with people to think 30 seconds down the road, 5 minutes down the road before unleashing their big, fat, stupid, impulsive yap traps for a fleeting moment of faux "satisfaction".
But Buffet has got that message down pat:
"You can always tell someone to go to hell tomorrow."
"This is a piece of advice Buffett received from a friend about fifty
years ago -- but Buffett reveals that it's one of the most useful things
he's ever learned. The point is that when something upsets you, refrain
from spouting off in a moment of anger and saying something you might
regret. He explains:"
"Just forget about it for a day. If you feel the
same way tomorrow, tell them then. You haven't missed the opportunity."
