Analysis and key concepts


By copying the greatest investors in history, we too can achieve the same results (or nearly) in business and in life


The only way to achieve different results, is to act differently


If we accept that the world is constantly evolving and that the future is uncertain, we will be sure that every decision we make is the right one at the time


Since the future is uncertain, it is important to reduce risk to a minimum, and resist the temptation to rush into things


Going against the grain requires courage and character, but if we resist the temptation to become rich immediately, we can achieve unexpected results.


Simplicity is key: we must always look for the least complicated way to achieve a goal


The richest rewards go to people who are able to resist the lure of instant gratification


By adopting several long-term habits, we can develop an enormous competitive advantage, both in our investments and in our daily lives


Greater long-term advantages can be gained from consistently trying not to be stupid, rather than always trying to be very intelligent
