Misc--> Thanks to the Charlie Rose Show for the Mr. & Mrs. Gates and Warren Buffett Quality Interview

On Monday June 26, 2006 I watched the PBS Charlie Rose Show with guests Warren Buffett and Melinda & Bill Gates.

It was really special to listen to the reasons and thoughts that went into Warren Buffett giving Billions of Dollars to the Gates Foundation.

The commitment of the Gates' to this Foundation is remarkable and should be applauded and thanked from everyone around the globe.

Warren Buffett's trust in Mr. & Mrs. Gates to use his money is an outstanding display of human nature at its best.

One of the statements that sticks with me is when Mr. Buffett said that he expects that mistakes will be made, freeing the foundation to try, fail, learn and try again.

Very profound, without being able to test and theory and make mistakes no learning will occur. It is clear that this philosophy followed by both the Gates' and Buffett is why they are so successful. They make plans and are not afraid to test them along the way so that the best decisions can be made by theory and asking questions of experts.

Charlie Rose is my favorite interviewer, if you did not get a chance to see the show and with these great personalities I have provided the links below.
