The Personal Rule of Success That Warren Buffett Swears By – Inc.

Posted: July 2, 2020 at 1:47 am


without comments

Warren Buffett's simple wisdom isn't exactly earth-shattering, but it's still brilliant.Soon to be 90years young, the Berkshire Hathaway CEOhas shared with the world common-senseinvestment and life rulesthat have worked for him.

It will also work for us if we allow these life lessonsto resonate deep in our souls, and then apply them to transform our lives. One of those Buffett rules is rather straightforward: Get rid of your bad behaviors.

Most of us have a sense of what's holding us backfrom reaching our full potential, andBuffett doesn't mince words when it comes to conquering your worst self.

I see people with these self-destructive behavior patterns. They really are entrapped by them.

The solution is quite simple. Headvised graduating students at the University of Florida to learn and practicegood habits early on before it's too late. Here's Buffett:

You can get rid of [a bad behavior]a lot easier at your age than at my age, because most behaviors are habitual. The chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.

Sure, it's much easier to shake off bad habits in your 20s than in your 50s or 60s. But whatever your age, getting rid of your most self-destructive habits is crucial for success.

When we were children, our parents would tell us things like:Stop talking with your mouthfull, don't burp in public, and stop hitting your brother. Has anything changed now that we wear big-boy pants?

Hardly. We've elevated mud-slinging in the playground to accepted corporate norms and behaviorsthatare taken unfortunately for granted. Here are fivebad behaviors to consider getting rid of.

Gossip is stealthy and many working professionals are unaware of when it happens, even when they're the perpetrators of gossip.

In its worse and darkest sense, gossip is used by people to further their own reputations and interests at the expense of their colleagues. And yet, it's hard to walk awayfrom a juicy story and, for those addicted to gossip (yes, it's a thing), even harder tokeep to themselves.

So when gossip permeates the hallways of an organization to the point where the workplace becomes a hostile work environment, there are dire consequences:

If you want to foster trust and a collaborative, high-performing team or organization, hop off the autocratic high-horse and stop instilling fear into the hearts and minds of people.

This means, as a leader, allowing freedom for others to experiment, lead themselves, stretch, and make mistakes. This will unleash discretionary effort and your team will produce great results.

When leadership is less about control and more about encouraging autonomy and collective wisdom, things happen. Let me rephrase that: Financial growth happens.

Effective communication isn't just about talking;great conversationalists listen intuitivelyto others'stories, asking questions, and searching conversations for depth, meaning, and understanding.

This takes the skill of being presentand in the moment, meaningyou cease having the need to talk over others to get yourpoint across, which works to your advantage. Because when you listen -- truly listen -- you hear peoples' objections, anxieties, and fears, as well asthe solution to problems.

Lyingis a fascinatingpsychologicalenigma. When I looked over the research about why peoplelie, it typically boils down totwo reasons:

Don't take that last point personally. Your colleagues maylie because of your very best qualities as well. But truth be told, it's your worst qualities that will trigger the most lies in others.

InYudhijit Bhattacharjee's terrificNational Geographicarticle, "Why We Lie: The Science Behind Our Deceptive Ways," he said something very thought-provoking:

Lying, it turns out, is something that most of us are very adept at. We lie with ease, in ways big and small, to strangers, co-workers, friends, and loved ones. Our capacity for dishonesty is as fundamental to us as our need to trust others, which ironically makes us terrible at detecting lies.Being deceitful is woven into our very fabric, so much so that it would be truthful to say that to lie is human.

So if to lie is human, you can bet it's happening frequently in your workplace or business. To counter the problem of deception and lying, being aware of the reasons people do it brings you that much closer to protecting yourself against the effects of lying.

That brings us to something obviously lacking at work -- integrity. Let me bring back Buffett to illustrate. In one of his annual letters toBerkshire Hathaway shareholders years back, Buffett wrote: "It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently."

How do you ruin your reputation in five minutes? Don't take responsibility for your actions.Anyone'sreputation, whole career, or successcan quickly fall like a house of cardsno matter the hard effort made or accolades won over the years.

Buffett is saying that, withoutintegrityrunning through your veins, you're going to eventually fail. Heis so sure that integrity is the life force that gives a person his or her influence andsuccess,he once saidthat if you hire or promote people with intelligence and energy but who lack integrity,"you really want them to be dumb and lazy."

The question is, which of these do you need to get rid of?

Iredell Health System recognized as one of the area’s healthiest employers – Statesville Record & Landmark

Posted: at 1:47 am


without comments

Iredell Health System was recognized as one of the 35 healthiest employers in the Charlotte area by the Charlotte Business Journal in its 10th annual Healthiest Employers of Greater Charlotte Awards.

Assigned a score based on surveys about its health and wellness program, Iredell Health System ranked seventh among employers with between 500-1,499 employees.

Iredell Health System is continually working to promote a healthy lifestyle among its employees, said Cindy Smale, Iredell Health Systems human resources director. As a healthcare organization, it is our job to inspire wellness in the community and be a guiding light for our citizens health. As we model those behaviors in everything we do, it is undeniably important for us to inspire wellness within our team members, and that is exactly what we do.

After the Charlotte Business Journal received nominations for the program from organizations across a variety of industries, nominees were evaluated based on company culture, leadership, strategic planning, communication, and programming, among other topics.

As other health systems have been forced to lay off or eliminate staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, Iredell Health System has not only kept its entire workforce but has implemented innovative ways to keep them healthy and engaged.

Nominated before the onset of the pandemic, Iredell Health Systems award reflects the preparatory importance of wellness programs focused on physical, financial, mental, emotional, and social health of employees. Iredells offices have remained open; its staff has remained employed; and its patients have continued to receive the care they need.

Real and virtual: Garrett Lowe thrives in personal version of The Double – NASCAR

Posted: at 1:47 am


without comments

Photos via Garrett Lowe Racing on Facebook

By

Garrett Lowe pulled off his own version of The Double on Tuesday when he raced at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway in two different series.

Normally, The Double is when a driver competes in the NASCAR Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 and the NTT IndyCar Series Indianapolis 500 on Memorial Day. Lowe, on the other hand, was a part of the U.S. Legend Cars Internationals Summer Shootout at the real Charlotte Motor Speedway and then the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series Round 9 at virtual Indianapolis later in the evening.

LEARN MORE: Coca-Cola iRacing Series | Summer Shootout

Come to think of it, I never thought about that being an option, tying it into the real world with the Coke 600 and the Indy 500, Lowe told NASCAR.com. But thats actually even cooler for me to think about it like that. Thats cool not only from the real world and the virtual world standpoint, but to go from Charlotte in a Legend car to Indy in a Cup car, thats pretty big. It was a lot of fun.

And it was a big success.

Lowe finished third in the Summer Shootout race and then fourth in the Coca-Cola iRacing Series event. With completely different teams, too. His Legends car was with Stillwell Racing, and his iRacing car was with Wood Brothers Racing.

Logistical planning took forever, Lowe said. I think me and my parents spent a total of about a week. We talked about it every day. Wed sit down and ask, Whats the game plan now? Any time we got a schedule update or anything, it was, OK, what do we have to change to accommodate this?

Lowe actually moved his iRacing simulator from his home, which is about 45 minutes from the Charlotte track, to a fellow Stillwell Racing members house in surrounding Concord, North Carolina. He even borrowed a wheel and pedals from another Legends driver.

All that prep ended up paying off more than Lowe could have imagined since the start of his Summer Shootout race was delayed due to weather. It was supposed to begin around 6 p.m. ET but pushed closer to 7:15 p.m. ET. He remembers it being 7:50 p.m. ET when all done. Lowe had a minor time buffer then before the Coca-Cola iRacing Series race went live at 9 p.m. ET.

RELATED: Lowes big start

Once we got rolling, I was pretty confident we were going to be fine, Lowe said. The stressful part was making sure I got everything good to go once I got back. But I was rather, I guess, calm more than I expected to be. I expected to be a little hyped after running a 25-lap race.

It took Lowe a couple minutes to get acclimated to his simulator again, having just been in a real car. He had 10 minutes to run a couple qualifying laps before the real deal. Then, it was race No. 2 time.

As far as the experience goes, Lowe said, it was little stressful and a little crazy.

Must have been worth it, though, considering Lowe is already mentally prepared to try to work double duty again.

The Coca-Cola iRacing Series next race is July 14. There will be no overlap then. But on July 28, when the Coca-Cola iRacing Series takes on virtual Michigan International Speedway, theres another Summer Shootout race.

Im really competitive at both, and Im committed to running both, Lowe said. So, if we can do both, were going to make it happen.

Orange Watch: Who could succeed John Swofford as ACC commissioner? – The Juice Online

Posted: at 1:47 am


without comments

Syracuse athletics director John Wildhack looks to the Syracuse bench. Mandatory Photo Credit: Brad Bierman.

Item: With John Swoffords recent announcement that he is retiring as ACC Commissioner at the conclusion of the 2020-21 academic year, we have two predictions about the next ACC commissioner: The individual will come from a current position at an ACC institution (and not the ACC office), and the hire will have a personal and/or professional Southern cultural background.

Yesterday, we took a look at the first half of each ACC schools athletic director (in alphabetical order). Here is the second half of the leagues athletic directors, and thoughts on who might succeed John Swofford:

North Carolina State Like father, like son? NCSU AD Boo Corrigan is the son of the late longtime Virginia and Notre Dame AD and former ACC Commissioner (1987-1995) Gene Corrigan, and served eight years as Armys AD and had other ACC stints before arriving in Raleigh. Hes uniquely qualified.

Notre Dame One month after Kevin White went to Duke in the summer of 2008, Notre Dame turned to career lawyer Jack Swarbrick to take his place guiding Irish athletics. For the prominent alum and longtime Indiana resident, it was a dream come true after missing out on jobs as AD at Indiana, Ohio State, Stanford, and as the Big 12 commissioner. We see Swarbrick, at age 66, eventually retiring at Notre Dame.

Pittsburgh In just over three years, Heather Lyke has made dramatic changes among Pitts head coaching ranks with the hiring of eight newcomers, including prying Jeff Capel away from Duke basketball in 2018 for his third stint as a head coach. Her most sartorial move, spearheading the rebranding of Pitts logo marks and official uniform colors to their 1980s mustard yellow and light blue look.

Syracuse Of course Cuse fans are going to label John Wildhack a no-brainer candidate, and he certainly seems like a natural choice with his ESPN pedigree and now entering his fifth year running Orange athletics. It was huge for Wildhack to make the career move back to his alma mater (with a lot of pulling) after three decades and so much success at ESPN, we simply do not envision him as the next ACC Commissioner.

Virginia In a year in which weve seen unprecedented attention paid to promoting racial equality around the country, the hiring of a successful female African American athletic administrator such as Georgia native Carla Williams as the ACC Commissioner would be, to use the term attributed to her approach in leading UVA athletics, forward thinking. In under three years of her tenure, the Cavaliers have won national titles in basketball and lacrosse, and football played in the Orange Bowl. Not too shabby.

Virginia Tech When he was hired six and a half years ago, Whit Babcock highlighted his Virginia heritage and understanding of building the culture needed to sustain winning in Blacksburg. The hiring of Justin Fuente is on course for football, but basketball has been an enigma with just two NCAA appearances since 2007.

Wake Forest The least-tenured current ACC AD is John Currie whos been at Wake since March 2019, but he enjoyed great success at Kansas State (2009-17) winning Big 12 titles in football and basketball. Its basketball Curries looking to fix with the Demon Deacons, waiting until this past April 25 to relieve Danny Manning of the job after six disappointing seasons, putting the program in the hands of newcomer Steve Forbes.

In fact, in 2020, Buffett and Bill Gates launched the Giving Pledge, asking billionaires to commit to donating half their wealth to charitable causes. Buffett practices what he preaches and so in year 2019, he had already donated $3.6 billion, much of it to the foundation of friends Bill and Melinda Gates.

Self-made millionaire: To be happy, young people should aspire to make $70,000 a year, not millionshere’s why – CNBC

Posted: at 1:47 am


without comments

Gary Vaynerchuk wishes young people would stop aspiring to make millions of dollars. The 44-year-old self-mademultimillionaire entrepreneur and CEO of VaynerMedia says he's seen that chasing millions makes people unhappy in life.

"If you're under 25, you think you have to make a million dollars a year to even be in the game," Vaynerchuk tells CNBC Make It.

But"I wish every 16-year-old on earth thought $70,000, not a million," he says.

"You would have a whole different world. You'd have people not doing things they hate."

Science supports Vaynerchuk's premise.

First, studies have shown that people feel happier the more money they make, but only to a point of about $75,000 per person a year. That's because money makes people happier to the point that it allows you to meet your basic needs, like food, a place to live and healthcare. After that, the correlation with happiness stops.

Beyond that, research also consistently shows that, from a happiness standpoint, it's more important that your job provides a sense of meaning or purpose than a high salary.

"I have so many friends who make $53,000 a year and genuinely enjoy their life," Vaynerchuk says. "And then, the serendipity of my life the last 20 years, I have an uncomfortable amount of friends who make $12 million dollars a year and are unhappy.

"I think we need to really redefine success."

Vaynerchuk also points out that "the entry level into the 1% in America, one of the richest countries in the world, is [over] $400,000 a year" indeed, you need to make $478,000 to be among the top 1% of earners in the U.S., as of 2019. So he also likes the $70,000 benchmark because it "frames up a conversation for people who can't even imagine [making millions]." In other words, for someone at the start of their career, that number may seem more attainable.

On a personal level, when Vaynerchuk was in his 20s and 30s, "my life didn't really have me running in circles of high net worth or luxury," he says. "I grew up pretty in pretty humble places and as a poor student."

Vaynerchuk immigrated to the U.S. from Belarus in the 1970s. His first job was bagging ice for his parents' liquor store for $2 an hour. As a student at Mount Ida College, he created a YouTube channel for reviewing fine wine, which turned him into an internet sensation.

But even with all of his success, Vaynerchuk believes that there's "no correlation" between his happiness and how much money he has. Instead, he believes what makes him happy is the work he does.

"I just love the game of entrepreneurship, the good, the bad and the ugly," he says. "And so I consider myself very happy because I love my process."

Honesty And Transparency The Key To The Overwhelming Success Of Credit And Personal Finance King Umesh Agarwal – Forbes India

Posted: at 1:47 am


without comments

With great money comes great taxes; this is the sentiment throughout all the governments in the world. Managing your finance can become a tedious affair, and one needs a good personal finance manager to maximize their wealth, generate more savings, and also pay the needed taxes. To have a proper personal finance manager is a boon and only a hundred percent trust and transparency yield success for the ones who hire. There is an entrepreneur who, with transparency and brilliant work ethic, transformed his and many of his clients personal finance life, he is Umesh Agarwal.Born in India, Umesh originally became an Engineer, and then came to the US for a post-graduate studies. Umesh belonged to a middle-class family; he traveled to India and back in an economy class, and always dreamed of sitting in the business class. This thought gave him an idea, i.e. to ethically figure out his way into the business class. Umesh was a quick learner since childhood, and he cracked the algorithm to earn a place in the business class of the flight using airlines mile program to his advantage. Umesh was thriving in the United States but felt that his life had become monotonous. He felt that he lacked the zeal and excitement in his life, just like the travel hacking he had done in his earlier days in the US.Umesh also learned that in the US, one needs a good credit score. Not knowing the credit business, Umesh focused on learning the ins and outs of credit, build his credit profile, and various techniques of maintaining that credibility. On the surface, a pretty boring subject, but Umeshs instincts kicked in, and he thought of digging in further with topics of personal finance such as the US housing market, business line of credit, etc. This research felt like attaining an MBA degree. Umesh gave up his monthly paycheck job and started his journey to become a successful entrepreneur.Umesh co-founded Credit 101 LLC and started giving tips to people on managing the credit score and finances. Umeshs steep rise in the personal finance manager business is because he chose transparency over money. Umesh built a strong base of clients as he would work with full honesty and transparency. Many major clients would jokingly say to him that he should not be 100% transparent in his work, but Umesh knew that it was the reason for his success in the first place and that didnt change. Umesh Agarwal became a millionaire, earning a seven-figure sum with his hard-work, patience, and strong will for success. Credit 101, the product of Umeshs and his partners combined skills and knowledge in credit repair, is a results-oriented company that is committed to developing strong relationships with its customers and teaching new skills for credit score restoration solutions. Credit 101 analyzes the credit report of the concerned clients to identify all negative factors hurting clients scores and then comes up with a custom game plan for each client's needs. Its client-centric strategies and methods to credit repair have been used by only 1% of companies in the same field nationwide.His journey has inspired a lot of young entrepreneurs, and his following has increased to over 300,000+ people on Instagram. Umeshs agency also offers comprehensive credit repair services and financial advice with complete transparency, which has turned him into a successful entrepreneur, and his followers have dubbed him as the King of Credit.If you want to learn more about how Umesh Agarwal and Credit 101 can restore your credit, check out his website or message him on Instagram.Disclaimer: The views, suggestions and opinions expressed here are the sole responsibility of the experts.

How Alena Sharp found her voice, success on the LPGA Tour – Sportsnet.ca

Posted: at 1:47 am


without comments

When Alena Sharp and Sarah Bowmans relationship started to blossom, it was in the most Canadian of ways they were playing hockey.

She loved to chase me down and definitely engage in some body-checking, says a laughing Bowman, who is from Pennsylvania. I just assumed that was a Canadian form of flirtation.

Sharp is one of just two Canadians with full-time status on the LPGA Tour, and Bowman has been her caddie since 2014.

Bowman is Sharps partner off the course as well.

Sharp, of Hamilton, says in her first years as a professional golfer, she wasnt as comfortable being openly gay although she says all of her friends knew. But with maturation comes confidence, and Sharp has found her voice as an LGBTQ athlete.

Its different to be open with the media, even though people knew, says Sharp, who turned 39 earlier this year and is in her 15th year as a pro. (But) things have got a lot easier. Well, not easier because its not an easy thing to come out but its more widely accepted now than when I was 22, 23, and I was really starting to tell people about who I actually was.

Despite the occasional difficulty mixing their professional and personal lives, Sharp says shes been lucky to have Bowman work alongside her. Their full-time inside-the-ropes relationship began when Sharp let her previous caddie go before an event in Hawaii, a trip Bowman was going to come on anyway.

It quickly became a working holiday. Of course, by that point Sharp already knew that Bowman had caddie skills she had won a Symetra Tour event earlier that same year with Bowman on the bag.

Sharp says its easier to let go with someone you love versus someone youre working with, so there are occasional vent sessions between the pair when the heat is on. But she says Bowman has been a huge part of her recent successes.

Im older and I have more experience on the course, but shes given me so much positive reinforcement no matter whats going on, she says. [Bowman] has helped me become more positive and not react too much to the ups and downs of golf in general.

No matter what, there is love, says Bowman. It doesnt matter if she makes a big putt or hits the shot thats not what Im there for, so to speak.

Bowman says she is able to bring some much-needed levity to a sport where there is lots of time to overthink or doubt oneself. On the links, the pair mostly talks about their dogs or, a couple of years ago, their backyard renovations.

Although Sharp hasnt found the winners circle on the LPGA Tour, shes become a fixture on womens golfs biggest stage. Her best career result was a fourth-place finish at the 2016 CP Womens Open, part of the big summer when she played in the Olympics as well. Shes earned more than $2 million (USD) in her career basically all of it since she started working with Bowman.

Sharp has also often been right there with Brooke Henderson as shes re-written the record books. Canadian womens golf has seen a handful of its bright lights burn out over the last couple of years whether for personal or health reasons but Henderson and Sharp have been a steady 1-2.

After almost every Henderson victory, Sharp and Bowman have been on the 18th green ready to celebrate with her. Henderson tells Sportsnet even on weeks when she came close but didnt win (including the CP Womens Open in 2019), the pair was there to greet her after her round.

Golf Canada Chief Executive Officer Laurence Applebaum says hes been impressed by Sharps off-course contributions as much as her on-course ones the past few years, particularly her leadership as a member of the LPGA Tours Board of Directors.

She has been a contributing and active voice in golf for me personally in wanting to help the sport and womens golf especially move forward and grow, says Applebaum. She brings her candor and authenticity in everything she does.

Off the course, Sharp says the wider acceptance shes seen for LGBTQ athletes, especially in Canada, is a positive step in the right direction.

She points to a recent Golf Canada initiative as one such example. At last years CP Womens Open, signs emblazoned with a rainbow triangle saying CP, Golf Canada & LPGA support positive space in sports were posted around Magna Golf Club.

There have been other indicators of the Tour standing for broader social change. In a statement on Twitter in the wake of the death of George Floyd, the Tour said that it had stood firmly for equality, opportunity, fairness, and unity since it was founded 70 years ago.

Its a start, and there are lots of good things happening, Bowman says, but there is still more to be done. After TV broadcasts, the couple has received messages from viewers saying the broadcast crews rarely mention Sharp and Bowman are a couple.

Normalizing their relationship on TV could go a long way, she says. Organizations like the You Can Play Project are helping to encourage LGBTQ participation in sport, but Bowman points to a recent study from the University of British Columbia that shows lesbian, gay, and bisexual teens are still half as likely to play sports as straight youth.

It is not something that concerns me on a personal level as we are comfortable in our own skin and our relationship, and do not need validation from outside sources, says Bowman. However, there are LGBTQ youth, and adults, that are watching and possibly struggling. A mention could possibly serve as reinforcement to them that they are normal and it really is OK.

Sharp, meanwhile, is more than OK. Shes found her voice, shes found love, and shes playing some great golf to boot.

Im embracing the role, says Sharp, and if I can help people by telling my story if it helps them thats something Im passionate about.
