#JayZ says key to #success is “be water.”

~ Be Water.

~ If you pour water in a cup, it takes the shape of the cup. If you pour it in a teapot, it takes the shape of the teapot. Be fluid. Treat each project differently. The best style is no style, because styles can be figured out. And when you have no one style, they can’t figure you out.

Whether it’s ketchup or ice cream or more recently batteries, Warren Buffett‘s Berkshire Hathaway is a powerhouse, managing a stable of more than 80 businesses. Its stock trades at more than $210,000 per share.

And if Berkshire Hathaway is legit, then Buffett — the company’s charismatic leader — is the real deal in business. At age 84, the man has a net worth of $66.8 billion, according to a recent report. Yes, you read that right. Billion. (Actually, it looks like he might be worth even more now…)

Buffett is the second wealthiest individual in the U.S., behind Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates ($81.5 billion) and ahead of Oracle’s Larry Ellison ($47.3 billion).

Birthday Quotes from Mr. Young.

While I was traveling in Morocco over the summer I happened to read the autobiography of a musician I’ve always found fascinating, Neil Young. And today is his birthday, so here are some lines from his book:
“Be great or be gone.”
“It hurts to be honest. But honesty is the only thing that works.”
“Business is not like a song. There is no last note. It just keeps going on and on, and there is conflict constantly.”
“It’s amazing what you can learn when you step outside the realm of people who are selling you something.”
“I am thankful for the things I have been able to try.”
“A lot of times, spontaneous change is seen as irresponsible, uncaring and self-serving.”
“Today music is presented as an entertainment medium, without the full audio quality. It’s like a cool pastime or a toy, not like a message to the soul. So things have changed.”
“Songs are a product of experience and a cosmic alignment of circumstances. That is, who you are and how you feel at a certain time.”
“Life is just a big test, and if you try too hard you fail. If you don’t try too hard and fail a little but have a good time, maybe that is success.”
“Time, the great healer, also brings the future.”
“The amp had a fine sound. It sucked in a really good way when you turned it up to twelve. Yes! It goes to twelve! Eat shit Spinal Tap!”
“Things are better now, because we have tools to get information out there, and if you’re smart enough, you don’t have to talk to two dickheads on a bus anymore.”

From: “Waging Heavy Peace” by Neil Young
