After finishing up the 4-part CNBC Squawk Podcast containing the full “Wealth of Wisdom” interview with Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, the journalist Becky Quick summed up the essence of their 60-year friendship and partnership (emphasis mine):

It’s not a complicated lesson, it’s probably just one we don’t sit on and reflect upon often enough. You should surround yourself with people who inspire you, and people you don’t want to disappoint. That’s what it’s all about, right? Making sure we are all our best selves. It’s such a universal truth. All of us can look at the relationships we’ve had over the years, and what inspires you to do better? It’s really those people who put faith in you, and wow, you don’t want to let them down.

Definitely something to reflect upon.

I enjoy all of these CNBC interviews with Becky Quick – you can see that she has a comfortable and respectful relationship with them, while still pressing them for clarity on certain issues. As soon as the interview officially ends, Becky Quick lets out a laugh and remarks:

You’d rather be in jail… than work at a corporation!?!”

Technically, Warren Buffet says he would rather be in jail with some interesting people and a good pile of books… rather than micro-managing the daily activities and hundred of employees of Berkshire subsidiaries. I get your point, Warren! 👍
