Warren Buffett said, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” It takes more than 15 years for BreadTalk to build up a reputable household brand in Singapore and then five minutes to ruin it.
In his talk ‘Only You can make the Difference,’ he quoted Sigmund Freud (hope I got it right from the video), ” … all of us think that we are immortal and we’re going to live forever and we’re constantly putting things off for tomorrow.” Don’t we always feel that – there’s always tomorrow – especially so when we are procrastinating and putting things off? “I’ll just do it tomorrow,” we told ourselves.
Next fall, when you see geese heading South for the Winter, flying along in “V” formation, you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way: as each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in “V” formation the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.
