I was reading Charlie Munger: complete investor and liked this section where the author talks about Berkshire Hathaway success factors.
These are some of them:
3. Clam but courageous and decisive
5. Confidence and non-ideological
6. Long-term oriented
9. Sound temperament
12. Reasonably intelligent and not misled by high IQ.
I am sure these are the few of their success recipe. But these 13 factors can be implemented in every realm of our life.
