Description: Warren Buffett gave one of his best lectures to students at the University of Florida’s school of business over two decades ago. As it happened, one of the MBA students popped Buffett a question, asking the billionaire what he would do to live a happier life if he could start all over again. Buffett’s response? He’s held an enduring level of happiness for decades, but he was quick to turn the focus back on the students by urging them to make better choices around career goals, finances, health, and relationships.
