found poem from a chat with jay z, warren buffett and steve forbes

Steve Forbes sat down for a conversation with Warren Buffett and Jay Z about success, hard work and philanthropy. It’s a wonderful portrait of two men from different generations comparing and contrasting their lives. I took a few notes and created a little sound bite found poem. Some of the words are direct quotes, some are the spirit of what was said, and some won’t make sense unless you watch the video. Guess who said what, and then see how many you got correct.

Start young. Be smart enough.
Don’t lose your shit.
Truth. Authentic. Discipline. Luck.
Do what you love. Don’t give up.
Embrace change. Practice. Take time to develop. 
Know what you’re good at and what you’re not good at. 

1 + 1 = 3. 
Try to create once in a lifetime experiences. 
The best boat you can have is your own talent. 
Education is important.
Emulate people you admire. 

Give back generously; you will have enough to live.

Thanks, Arian Moayed, who shared this video in the social feeds.
