October Edition Highlights
1. Cover Story of the Month:Compound Knowledge
What causes some people to become world-class leaders, performers and change makers, while most others not? It is called compound time, like compound interest, a small investment now yields surprisingly large returns over time. Warren Buffett, for example, despite owning companies with hundreds of thousands of employees, isn’t as busy as you are. By his own estimate, he has spent 80 percent of his career reading and thinking. Ben Franklin once wisely said: “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” Perhaps the source of Buffett’s true wealth is not just the compounding of his money, but the compounding of his knowledge, which has allowed him to make better decisions.

All of them rely on a different set of assumptions and conditions and of course, they all have their own strengths and weaknesses. In this edition we will look at each of them in more detail
