Some of the worlds highest achievers have one thing in common: it isn’t a high IQ, nor is it an incredible lucky streak, but their appreciation for reading. Books were their most profitable investment.

世界上一些最成功的人有一个共同点:不是高智商,也不是有过人的运气,而是热衷于阅读。书本是他们收益最好的投资。

From $2 to $20 billion

从2美元到200亿美元

Two teenage boys found employment at a grocery store in Omaha, Nebraska. The older boy, from a poor family devastated by the Great Depression, bred and sold hamsters for spare change. The younger boy, grandson of the store owner, had been delaying college and working odd jobs, like selling chewing gum and coke bottles door to door.

有两个少年曾经在内布拉斯加州奥马哈的一家杂货店打工。年纪大的那个男孩,家里遭受30年代美国经济大萧条的打击,家境贫困。他靠养殖和贩卖仓鼠来赚零花钱。年纪轻的那个,是杂货店店主的孙子,一直延迟上大学去打零工,例如挨家挨户卖口香糖和可乐。

Back then, each boy made about $2 a day. Just a few decades later, they’d be raking in $20 billion in profit per year with their conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway. Who were these boys? None other than Charlie Munger and Warren Buffett.

那时,他们每人每天赚2美元。只过了几十年,他们通过企业集团波克夏·哈萨威(Berkshire Hathaway),每年赚取高达200亿美元的利润。这两个少年是谁?正是查理·芒格和沃伦·巴菲特。

How did they become the most successful investors America has ever seen?

美国有史以来最成功的投资者是怎样炼成的?

Buffett spends 80% of his day reading

巴菲特每天80%的时间用来读书

Fast track to 2007, the 84 year-old Charlie Munger, reveals to a crowd of aspiring law students the secrets to their success:

时间快速来到2007年,当时84岁的查理·芒格向一群胸怀大志的法律专业学生透露了他们成功的秘诀:

“I constantly see people rise in life who are not the smartest, sometimes not even the most diligent, but they are learning machines. They go to bed every night a little wiser than they were when they got up and boy does that help, particularly when you have a long run ahead of you.”

“我一直观察那些生活有提升的人,发现他们不是最聪明的,甚至不是最勤奋的,但他们就像机器一样不停地学习。他们晚上睡觉的时候比当天早上起来稍微多了一些智慧。同学们,如果你前面还有很长一段路要走,这确实大有裨益。”

Supposedly, in the early days of Buffett’s investment career, he would read 600-1000 pages in a single day. Nowadays, he still dedicates 80% of his day to reading.

据说,在巴菲特早年的投资生涯里,他每天会读600到1000页书。现在,他每天仍然投入80%的时间看书。


“Read 500 pages…every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”

“每天……500页。知识就是这么获得的。就像复利一样,连本带利地累积。所有人都能做到,但我肯定很少人会去做。”

His takeaway for everyone: no matter where you are in life, keep on learning and you will succeed.

他对每个人的建议:无论你处于人生的哪个位置,坚持学习,你就会成功。

The billionaire book club

亿万富翁读书会

Buffett and Munger are not the only ones who credit their success to reading.

巴菲特和芒格不是唯一几个将个人成就归功于阅读的人。

Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk reportedly learned how to build rockets by reading books. Musk was bullied a lot as a child in South Africa. He found comfort in fantasy and science-fiction books, which inspired him to leave a legacy in the world.

据闻,科技企业家埃隆·马斯克通过阅读,学习了建造火箭的方法。马斯克小时候在南非经常受人欺负。他从奇幻和科幻小说中找到了慰藉,也从中得到启发,为世人留下众多科技发明。

Bill Gates, the richest man in the world and a lifelong bookworm, reads about 50 books a year, but strictly nonfiction ones. Although he gets to visit a lot of places and meet interesting people, he would still rather read books to acquire new knowledge.

比尔·盖茨,全球最富有的人,也做了一辈子的书虫,一年读大约50本书。严格来说,是非小说类书籍。尽管他会访问不同的地方和会见各种有趣的人,但他更愿意通过读书来学习新知识。

Similarly, Mark Zuckerberg invited the whole world to join him on his quest to read a book every two weeks in 2015.

同样地,在2015年,马克·扎克伯格邀请全世界的人加入他的读书行动,目标是每两周读一本书。

So, what are your reading goals?
