When Mike Flint – Buffet’s personal airplane pilot – asked his employer for some career advice, Buffet asked Flint to make a list of his priorities. Flint came back with a list of 25 items.
Buffet then told Flint to focus on the first 5 items and never look at, or pay any attention to, the other 20 items until the first 5 were completed. Items 6 to 25 were put on an Avoid at All Cost List.
Buffet told Flint that spending time on 20 secondary priorities was likely to result in a list of 25 half completed projects, as opposed to 5 completed projects.

Three 5-year-old boys were sitting in the park arguing over whose Dad was the greatest.
One said, “My Dad is the greatest because he’s the town’s Mayor.”
The second boy said, “That’s pretty good, but my Dad owns the biggest hotel in town.”
The third boy said, “That’s nothing, my Dad owns Hell. Before he came back from the pub late last night, my mum said she was going to give it to him.”
Have a great week.
